Halifax – Eight communities in Nova Scotia will receive more than $922,000 for water and wastewater projects through the Provincial Capital Assistance Program.

The province’s department of municipal affiars and housing on Sept. 30 announced the following projects:
  • $135,000 for the pre-design phase of a wastewater treatment plant in the Town of Lunenburg
  • $54,891 for the Town of Mahone Bay to assess the condition of the water utility’s transmission main and look at options for dechlorination at the wastewater treatment plant
  • $39,107 for the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg to study water and wastewater issues in the community of Garden Lots
Also announced were six projects under the Flood Risk Infrastructure Investment Program for a total of more than $210,000. This program helps fund projects that identify or mitigate flood risks.

The Municipality of the District of Lunenburg is receiving $39,107 from this program to look at options to protect the Petite Riviere Watershed from flooding.

Both programs are application-based. Funds under both programs are matched by the municipalities
