Funding will help restore aging infrastructure

Vallée-des-Rivières, N.B. – A joint investment of more than $4.3 million has been made by the federal and provincial governments to improve water and sewer infrastructure in three New Brunswick communities.

This investment will enable improvements to the water and sewer networks that will increase drinking water quality and allow for better management of wastewater and stormwater in Baker-Brook and Heron Bay. Additional work to close the loop on the water network will be undertaken in the Honoré-Roy area in Saint-Léonard, which will increase water pressure and quality.

These projects will help increase access to clean drinking water in these communities and improve their capacity to manage wastewater and stormwater.


“Our communities deserve clean and safe drinking water,” René Arseneault, Member of Parliament for Madawaska-Restigouche, on behalf of Dominic LeBlanc, minister of intergovernmental affairs, infrastructure and communities, said. “That is why we are proud to support improvements to water infrastructure in New Brunswick communities. This funding will allow these three communities to restore and improve their aging infrastructure while increasing their capacity to treat and manage wastewater and stormwater. This will ensure the longevity of the infrastructure and better safeguard the health and environment of our citizens for years to come.”
