The Government of Saskatchewan is investing nearly $532,000 in upgrades to the sewage disposal facility at Kimball Lake Campground in Meadow Lake Provincial Park this fall.
“Our provincial parks continue to be very popular destinations across Saskatchewan,” Acting Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Christine Tell said. “Providing park visitors with a great experience and high-quality infrastructure are top priorities for the Ministry.”
The upgrades, which will begin this fall, include an expansion of the existing lagoon cells and the installation of a synthetic liner to the primary and secondary cells to prevent seepage. Improvements to the park’s wastewater conveyance system and installation of a sewage disposal station are also part of the project. The project will also ensure that all necessary environmental requirements will continue to be met.
The contract for this work was awarded to Gee Bee Construction Ltd. of Kipling, and the project is scheduled to be completed in late fall of 2017.
Kimball Lake Campground will close for the season on September 4, however; fall camping is available at many of the other campgrounds in Meadow Lake Provincial Park. Premier hiking and cycling trails, wildlife viewing and a variety of water activities are available.
