The federal and provincial governments announced today upgrades and funding for drinking water and water infrastructure projects in three provincial parks and in nine communities.
The Rowan’s Ravine Provincial Park will reconstruct it’s facultative lagoon into a two cell lagoon. The project will include raising existing berms and rehabilitating various existing structures. The new lagoon will bring the park up to speed with federal and provincial wastewater treatment regulations and provide Rowan’s Ravine with the capacity to meet current and future park needs.
The governments also announced the SaskWater Highway 9 Regional Water Supply System project, which will see construction on a new water treatment plant and a 55 km potable pipeline that will provide service to the communities of Preeceville, Sturgis, Stenen, Hyas, Norquay, Pelly, Crystal Lake, Clayton No.333 and Keys No.303.
The governments of Canada and Saskatchewan are investing more than $23.6 million toward these projects through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program’s Green Infrastructure Stream. Canada is contributing over $12.7 million and Saskatchewan is funding over $10.8 million.
