Saskatchewan – Nine communities will benefit from a combined influx of $6.9 million from the governments of Canada and Saskatchewan to improve water infrastructure.
The Village of Zenon Park will receive funding to improve its potable water storage. This work will involve rehabilitating the village’s existing water tower, replacing the de-icing circulation system and other associated works.
Funding will also support upgrades to the Village of Paradise Hill’s water treatment plant. The facility will see the installation of biological pre-treatment filters to improve treated water quality and decrease the use of chemical treatments.
The Town of Shaunavon will upgrade two existing drinking water wells to incorporate ultraviolet (UV) light as the source of primary disinfection.
“Investments in green infrastructure are key to building vibrant and sustainable communities,” Duguid said. “The investments we are making today will improve existing water infrastructure by providing reliable services to community members. This work will ensure the longevity of the infrastructure and better safeguard the health and environment of our citizens for years to come.”
“The Government of Saskatchewan is proud to invest more than $3.1 million toward these important water projects that will improve the service of these local utilities, increase water quality, and position communities for growth,” McMorris said.
By investing in infrastructure, the governments of Canada and Saskatchewan are growing the economy, building resilient communities, and improving the lives of Saskatchewan residents.
