Improved Wastewater Treatment for the Town of Lampman

Released on November 9, 2017

Investing in local wastewater infrastructure ensures Canadians have access to modern, reliable services that encourage economic growth and help build strong, healthy communities for future generations.

Today, the governments of Canada and Saskatchewan announced funding to upgrade the Town of Lampman’s wastewater treatment infrastructure.  The federal and provincial governments are each contributing more than $1.6 million to this project through the New Building Canada Fund’s Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component—National and Regional Projects.  The project has a total eligible cost of $5 million.  The Town of Lampman is responsible for all remaining costs.

The work includes constructing a new, two-cell lagoon and sewage force main, upgrading the current sewage pumping station, and decommissioning the existing lagoon.  This project will support economic development by ensuring reliable and modern wastewater services that meet the needs of residents and businesses and protect local waterways and ecosystems.

“Modern and efficient infrastructure is the foundation of the Canada we want to build for tomorrow,” said Ralph Goodale Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, on behalf of Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities.  “I’m pleased that the Government of Canada is investing in improvements to wastewater infrastructure for the residents of Lampman.  Upgrading these 55 year-old facilities will not only help safeguard public health, but will also preserve the local environment and lay important groundwork for future community development.”

“The Government of Saskatchewan is proud to be contributing more than $1.6 million toward this very important project for the Town of Lampman,” Government Relations Minister Larry Doke said.   “This will improve the quality of life for Lampman residents and keeps our province strong through investments in core infrastructure by supporting and building our communities.”

“When federal, provincial, and municipal governments work together to improve local infrastructure, much-needed projects like ours can more easily become a reality,” Town of Lampman Mayor Sean Paxman said.  “The Town of Lampman looks forward to its new wastewater lagoon moving forward, and thanks the governments of Canada and Saskatchewan for their funding contributions.”
