Petit-Rocher, N.B. – A new water treatment system that uses nano filtration will be constructed in Petit-Rocher, N.B.

The existing pump station will be expanded. A new treatment system for the filtration backwash, and connections to municipal water services, will also be built.

Once completed, the site will be rehabilitated and expanded with a new parking lot to better assist with increased capacity and demand at the existing centre.

The new water treatment system will improve the overall water quality for residents, increase access to potable water, and help end boil water advisories for some members of the community, Insfrastructure Canada said in a news release.

The federal government is providing more than $2.5 million in this project through the Rural and Northern Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada infrastructure plan. New Brunswick is providing more than $1.3 million. The Village of Petit-Rocher is providing more than $278,000 in funding.
