Governments of Canada and Saskatchewan Support Modern and Efficient Wastewater Infrastructure in Carnduff

Released on November 10, 2016

Having access to clean, reliable drinking water is critical to the health and prosperity of Canadian communities and for attracting economic opportunities for the middle class and those trying to join it.

By ensuring that water and wastewater systems are modern, efficient and meet the capacity needs of our communities, we are safeguarding the well-being of residents, protecting our waterways and preserving our ecosystems.

“The Government of Canada is committed to investing in modern infrastructure that meets the needs of our communities, supports the middle class, and ensures that Canada will remain the best place in the world to live, work and raise a family,” Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness said on behalf of Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities.  “This important investment in Carnduff will improve local wastewater treatment services, which is crucial to protecting the local environment and keeping our communities healthy and livable.”

“As our province continues to grow, we remain committed to keeping Saskatchewan strong and making life better for our citizens,” Cannington MLA Dan D’Autremont said on behalf of Government Relations Minister Donna Harpauer.  “Improving the capacity and reliability of Carnduff’s wastewater system will ensure it meets the needs of its residents, both now and in the future.”

“The Town of Carnduff is extremely thankful for the funding announcement made today for our lagoon project,” Carnduff Mayor Ross Apperley said.  “Assistance from the federal and provincial government was vital to this project and its ability to proceed.  Completing this project will ensure the long-term sustainability of our communities’ sewer infrastructure and allow our community to continue to meet our growing needs.  We look forward to working with our federal and provincial partners on this project.”

In Saskatchewan, new federal and provincial funding will go toward a combination of new wastewater infrastructure and upgrades to an existing sewage pumping station in the Town of Carnduff.

The Town’s current system is undersized and is not meeting the demands of the population.  This project will not only improve the capacity and reliability of the wastewater system, allowing the Town to contribute to local economic activity, but will also improve protection of the environment.

Both the Government of Canada and the Province of Saskatchewan are contributing up to $2.85 million for this project.  The Town of Carnduff will be responsible for all remaining costs of the project, which has a total eligible cost of $8.56 million.
