The federal government has pledged solutions to Attawapiskat's drinking water crisis, after the First Nation declared a state of emergency earlier this month due to concerns about disinfection byproducts called trihalomethanes in its water.

Indigenous Services Minister Seamus O'Regan paid a visit to the community on Sunday and said there is a $1.5-million plan for immediate repairs to the existing treatment plant.

His office has also said clean drinking water will be available from a second system.
