Seventy-five water and wastewater projects in Saskatchewan will help provide clean water and protect the environment

REGINA, June 2, 2017 /CNW/ - The governments of Canada and Saskatchewan are committed to investing in local infrastructure that provides Canadians and their families with access to modern, reliable water and wastewater services that meet their needs. These investments safeguard the health and well-being of residents, protect provincial waterways and preserve local ecosystems.

Today, the Honourable Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, on behalf of the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities; and the Honourable Donna Harpauer, Minister of Government Relations; announced funding for 75 new water and wastewater projects throughout Saskatchewan. This investment represents combined federal, provincial and local partner funding of more than $94 million for 74 Clean Water and Wastewater Fund (CWWF) projects, and one project under the Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component – National and Regional Projects.

The funding will support such initiatives as building new sewage treatment lagoons, upgrading sewage pumps, and improving drinking water supply systems. This work will improve the reliability of water and wastewater services, while also allowing for future growth and development in communities across Saskatchewan.

The CWWF projects announced today are part of the bilateral agreement between Canada and Saskatchewan announced on September 16, 2016. These are in addition to $29.5 million in federal funding and $14.7 million in provincial funding announced that day for 10 water projects and more than $17.9 million in federal funding and $8.9 million in provincial funding announced on January 11, 2017, for an additional 26 projects under the CWWF.
