Better stormwater management infrastructure for Region fo Peel residents

46 new projects approved in 5 communities

MISSISSAUGA, ON, May 23, 2017 /CNW/ - The governments of Canada and Ontario are committed to investing in local infrastructure that ensures Canadians and their families have access to modern, reliable water and wastewater services that meet their needs. These investments safeguard the health and well-being of residents, protect waterways and preserve local ecosystems, while also laying the foundation for new economic opportunities to strengthen the middle class across the province.

The Honourable Navdeep Singh Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, on behalf of the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, Minister of Seniors Affairs, the Honourable Dipika Damerla, on behalf of the Honourable Bob Chiarelli, Ontario Minister of Infrastructure, and Frank Dale, Regional Chair and Chief Executive Officer for the Region of Peel today announced that 30 new projects in the Region of Peel have been approved under the Government of Canada's Clean Water and Waste Water Fund. The federal government is providing up to 50 per cent of funding for these projects—over $69 million. The provincial government is providing up to 25 per cent of funding for these projects—over $34 million, and the recipient will provide the balance of funding.

Thanks to this investment, residents in the Region of Peel will benefit from a number of sewage pumping stations being rehabilitated or replaced, as well as equipment at several water pollution control plants being replaced. These projects are essential to keeping our waterways clean and our communities healthy and livable.

In addition to these projects, $7.2 million in federal funding for 16 water and wastewater projects will benefit four other communities across Ontario.

This investment is part of an agreement between Canada and Ontario for the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund.

The Honourable Navdeep Singh Bains, Member of Parliament for Mississauga-Malton, on behalf of the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities

"This investment by the province—over $2,500,000 in Mississauga and over $34,000,000 in the greater Peel Region—will ensure that Mississauga has clean water and reduce risks of flooding. I am pleased that these projects will contribute to enhanced quality of life in Mississauga for years to come."

The Honourable Dipika Damerla, Member of Provincial Parliament for Mississauga East—Cooksville

"Unfortunately, all too often this specific element of infrastructure investment – that we highlight today - receives attention when something goes wrong. However, that is not the case in this circumstance. Today's announcement outlining the investments that will be made in the rehabilitation and replacement of  clean water equipment and facilities here at Lakeview, as well as the commencement of new wastewater projects, will ensure that our residents continue to benefit from efficient access to safe, clean and reliable drinking water."

Frank Dale, Regional Chair and Chief Executive Officer for the Region of Peel
