Fresh, Clean, Quality Water

for all Indigenous Communities

“Water holds the key to sustainable development. We need it for health, food, security and economic progress.”

The United Nations Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon stressed the vital role of water in sustainable development at a recent conference in Budapest, Hungary. Chief Roger Augustine is Mi’kmaq from the Province of New Brunswick, and is currently the Regional Chief for NB/PEI, Assembly of First Nations (AFN), working with leading partners is moving forward to solving sustainable water acsess and management Indigenous communities across Canada.

Solutions for sustainable quality water to suppport Indigenous communities across Canada.

Iceland, with a population of around 365,000, has an overabundance of spring water and more per capita than any other country in the world. The Icelandic government is committed to sharing this water with the world and areas where water scarcity and poor-quality cause millions of deaths per annum. Gitpo Spirit Lodge along with our Indigenous and non-Indigenous partners are working together to create a supply chain opportunity, that will not only provide clean drinking water to Indigenous communities across Canada, but also create employment opportunities for Indigenous Peoples as well. 

Iceland has one of the high volumes of Icelandic natural fresh spring water conforming to the highest attainable standards of quality and purity. The quality of water is one of the purest found on the planet.

Flexitank / Bag – Flexi-bags offer an alternative to ISO tank containers for shipping water. Flexi bags are usually loaded into 20′ food-grade, ISO containers upto 26,000 litres per bag.

SGP Tank – Set-up in Indigensous communities, a SGP Tank would hold enough fresh Icelandic water to support all households with access to clean, fresh drinking water made available to portal boxes. 

Box Water will provide each household with 3-5 liters of easy to store eco-friendly Icelandic Spring Water.  Conveniently kept in refrigerator, accessible for use anytime. 

Solutions for a better future

Sharing freshwater resources between geographical regions like Reykjafoss Ehf in Iceland who has the “assets” to accomplish this. 

  • High quality, healthy, natural, sustainable freshwater resources from Iceland’s springs.
  • A willing government, encouraging the export of its water resources.
  • Technology to economically harvest and transport large volumes globally.
  • Geographic location to facilitate economical delivery, port to port.
  • Technology to offload and store water in temporary or large volume storage tanks.
  • Technology that provides for local delivery and easy dispensing of the water.
  • Methodology that provides for regular replenishment at local level as needed.
  • Technology needed to clean-up waterways and bring aquifers to life.
  • Methodology to establish water treatment plants and recycling plants anywhere.

Iceland is considered one of the world’s most pristine ecosystems. Icelandic Spring water possesses a naturally low mineral content (TDS of 62 ppm). Given the high quality of the water no cleaning or treatment is required (chemical, mechanical, biological).

Quality is monitored throughout the distribution system.

Filtered for thousands of years through layers of lava rock, Icelandic Spring water maintains a highly desirable and uncommonly high pH of 8.4 – 8.8, making it naturally alkaline. Due to the high pH-value, the water is alkaline and demonstrably helps regulate the acid-base balance. This water is suitable to bind and neutralize acid, therefore, toxic waste products are transported out of the human body faster.


The high content of oxygen in the Icelandic Spring water stimulates the metabolism and helps to absorb nutrients more efficiently. Will enhance athletic performance.


Reykjafoss Ehf will perform continuous testing to ensure that our water will meet top food safety and quality standards. We intend to have our facilities fully accredited by the NSF to meet the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) as well as the World Health Organization requirements (WHO). Our facilities will be regularly inspected by the Icelandic Public Health Authority, which carries out stringent tests to ensure the facility is operating in compliance with required standards.


pH is the negative log of hydrogen ion concentration in a water-based solution. The term “pH” was first described by Danish biochemist Søren Peter Lauritz Sørensen in 1909. pH is an abbreviation for “power of hydrogen” where “p” is short for the German word for power, potenz
and H is the element symbol for hydrogen.


Dissolved solids” refer to any minerals, salts, metals, cations or anions dissolved in water. Total dissolved solids (TDS) comprise inorganic salts (principally calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, bicarbonates, chlorides, and sulfates) and some small amounts of organic matter that are dissolved in water.

BULK AQUA EHF is an exporter of Icelandic bulk water in ‘Flexi-Tank’ containers. The Flexi-Tanks are filled with Icelandic Spring Water and shipped to Germany and Belgium.

The Flexi-Tanks are manufactured in a state-of-the-art ISO 22000 certified
production facility. These quality tested products meet international
standards for contact with food and non-hazardous free flowing bulk liquids, including US FDA, and German BGA. Current export is 50 tanks per year and increasing.

The Flexi-Tanks carry 24,000 liters of water and filled at Icelandic Source

  • Has resistance to microbial viruses and diseases.
  • Environmentally friendly packaging (separate disposal of the box and bag).
  • Less space required in shipping and lower transportation cost.
  • No risk of contamination from chemical additives as with plastic by using an inner bag free of additives protected by a supplementary oxygen barrier.
  • Bag in a Box has a lower Carbon Footprint than plastic bottles

Gitpo Spirit Lodge is working to ensure that each Indigneous Community that adopts our program, will be led and managed by their locate community. This ensures self-sustaining opportunities while also creating local employment.  The management of local facilities also provides an opportunity for revenue generation.
