Will the budget address Ontario's aging water systems?



    TORONTO, March 20 /CNW/ - With an accumulated $18 billion backlog of
desperately needed water and sewer repairs in Ontario, all eyes will be on the
provincial budget next week to see if Queen's Park plans to help
municipalities address the issue.
    According to the Ontario Sewer and Watermain Construction Association
(OSWCA), the impacts of under funding are now being felt in many communities.
Aging and corroded pipes, burst watermains, sinkholes, and high leakage rates
are evident across the province.
    OSWCA Executive Director Frank Zechner will be available at the
Legislative Building for media interviews immediately following the release of
the budget.

    
    When:     Tuesday, March 25, 2008
              Approximately 4 p.m.

    Where:    Legislative Building
              Queen's Park
