Here’s How Water Services will Improve Throughout Halton
The Halton Region is working to improve water services for residents across the board.
How you ask?
With new projects.
In a recent press release, the Honourable Karina Gould, Minister of Democratic Institutions, on behalf of the Honourable Francois-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities; the Honourable Monte McNaughton, Ontario Minister of Infrastructure; and Gary Carr, Halton Regional Chair, announced two new projects under the Government of Canada’s Clean Water and Wastewater Fund (CWWF).
The federal government will be investing up to 50 per cent ($4,029,412) of the funding for these projects.
The provincial government will be providing more than $2,014,706, and the Corporation of the Regional Municipality of Halton will provide the balance of the funding.
The goal of these projects is to protect water services by insulating and lowering supply lines in Georgetown, Halton Hills, Acton, Oakville and Burlington.
Resulting in residents and local businesses continuing to have reliable, year-round access to clean water regardless of weather conditions.
“On behalf of Regional Council, I would like to thank the federal and provincial governments for their investments in Regional infrastructure through the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund," Gary Carr, Halton Regional Chair, said in the press release.
"These important infrastructure investments ensure residents continue to have access to reliable and high quality drinking water and a high quality of life.”
In addition, $320,500 in federal funding for eight other water and wastewater projects will benefit six other communities across the province of Ontario. The provincial government will be providing $160,250 for these projects.
These investments, according to the press release, are part of an agreement between Canada and Ontario for the CWWF.
