Oh Black Water...

...keep on rollin'!

Water's back -- and black. Problems at the pump and we're on a boil water advisory.

But our boil water advisory will last until our village works crew fixes the problem. Then we'll go back to the clean, delicious-right-out-of-the-tap water we are used to in my little mountain village.

Harking back to an earlier rant from another site on another day, not everyone else can say the same.

In this 2008 report, more than 1700 communities in Canada have had to boil their water for safety and potability this year alone. Many First Nations communities live under a standing boil-water advisory.

There's something wrong with this picture.
