New Water Treatment and Sewage Disposal Facility for Pilot Butte

Released on July 25, 2014

Minister of Corrections and Policing and MLA for Regina Wascana Plains Christine Tell, on behalf of Government Relations Minister Jim Reiter, joined Member of Parliament for Regina Qu’Appelle Andrew Scheer and Deputy Mayor of Pilot Butte Ed Sigmeth to mark the completion of Pilot Butte’s new water treatment and sewage disposal facility at a ribbon cutting ceremony today.

“This is one of the fastest growing areas in the province,” Tell said.  “The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased to support the continued growth of Pilot Butte and Balgonie by investing over $3.18 million in this important project through the Provincial-Territorial Base Fund.”

“The Government of Canada has invested in this major initiative in Pilot Butte because it will provide clean, drinkable water and help to ensure a healthy and prosperous community for years to come,” Scheer said.  “Working with the provincial and municipal governments on this project has been an obvious success and money well spent right here in our community.”

The total cost for the water treatment and sewage disposal project was $25,029,017, with a total combined contribution of $12,964,184 from the Government of Canada and the Government of Saskatchewan through the Provincial-Territorial Base Fund.  The Town of Pilot Butte contributed $12,064,833.

The Government of Saskatchewan is also providing interest subsidies of up to $812,992 over a five year period on funds borrowed for the town’s portion of the infrastructure project through the Saskatchewan Infrastructure Growth Initiative Program.

The new water treatment plant will provide the residents of Pilot Butte with a reliable supply of excellent quality drinking water.  Water from the new treatment plant will also be provided to the Town of Balgonie by pipeline.

“The Town of Pilot Butte appreciates the federal and provincial contributions to our municipal water and sewer infrastructure,” Sigmeth said.  “This is an investment in the future growth of our community.
