Government is supporting water and wastewater projects for ten communities through the Provincial Capital Assistance Program. Zach Churchill, Minister of Municipal Affairs, announced an investment of over $940,000 today, April 28. “Access to safe drinking water and wastewater treatment are vital for strong, healthy communities,” said Mr. Churchill. “This funding will support important municipal projects to maintain and improve these essential services for residents.” The program allows the province to contribute funds towards high-cost priority municipal infrastructure projects. Projects receiving funding in 2017-2018 include upgrades to technology at pump stations, water towers, reservoirs and water treatment facilities.
