Federal Funding Awarded to Participate in the Environmental Assessment of the Proposed Water West Regional Water Supply Project



    OTTAWA, May 6 /CNW Telbec/ - The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency
(the Agency) has awarded a total of $10,000 to the Métis Nation of
Saskatchewan to support its participation in the environmental assessment of
the proposed Water West Regional Water Supply Project in west central
Saskatchewan.
    This funding is being provided to assist the recipient to participate in
the comprehensive study process and in the review of the comprehensive study
report to be submitted by the responsible authority, Infrastructure Canada.
    A Funding Review Committee (FRC), independent of the environmental
assessment process, was established to examine the funding request received
for this project. All of the FRC's recommendations are unanimous and are
contained in its report. The report, along with further information on the
project, is available in the Canadian Environmental Assessment Registry at
www.ceaa-acee.gc.ca , under reference number 08-03-38510.
    Water West Pipeline Cooperative Ltd. is a legally associated water
pipeline utility planning to construct a large scale water infrastructure
system in west central Saskatchewan. The project would expand the currently
operating EK Water Administration Board water pipeline which has been in
existence since 1964. The proposed project is located south of Kindersley
toward the South Saskatchewan River and would follow existing water pipeline
right of ways.

    The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency administers the federal
environmental assessment process, which identifies the environmental effects
of proposed projects and measures to address those effects, in support of
sustainable development.
