Governments of Canada and Saskatchewan Support Modern and Efficient Wastewater Infrastructure Upgrades for White City

Released on February 27, 2017

By ensuring that water and wastewater systems are modern, efficient and meet the capacity needs of communities, the governments of Canada and Saskatchewan are safeguarding the well-being of residents, protecting the province’s waterways and preserving its ecosystems.

Today, Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness; Central Services Minister Christine Tell on behalf of Government Relations Minister Donna Harpauer; WCRM158 Wastewater Management Authority Inc. Chair and Town of White City Councillor Cec Snyder; and WCRM158 Wastewater Management Authority Inc. Vice Chair and Div. 2 RM of Edenwold No. 158 Councillor Stan Capnerhurst announced support for a new wastewater treatment facility.

Serving both the Town of White City and the Emerald Park area of the RM of Edenwold, this new treatment plant will use an effective and low-energy treatment process.  Improved services will allow these communities to handle wastewater from the current population, as well as accommodate future residential and commercial development.

“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,” said Goodale.  “This important investment will protect the environment, provide reliable wastewater services for local residents, and support population growth and business development in the area.”

“The Government of Saskatchewan’s more than $7.3 million investment toward this project will renew local infrastructure to help keep our great province strong,” Tell said.  “This project is also a good example of what local municipalities can accomplish by working together to reach a common goal to improve services for our citizens.”

“The WCRM158 Wastewater Management Authority is very pleased to receive this funding from the federal and provincial governments,” Snyder said.  “The construction of a modern wastewater treatment plant will serve the residents of the communities of White City and Emerald Park areas for many years.  This project will also provide the capacity to accommodate growth in one of the fastest growing residential and commercial areas of the province.”

“The WCRM158 Wastewater Authority was formed in 2009 to provide wastewater treatment and disposal for the communities of White City and the RM of Edenwold No. 158 (Emerald Park) areas,” Capnerhurst said.  “The infrastructure to be constructed with this funding will enable development to continue in the area and ensure a strong economic base for the community.”

The Government of Canada and the Government of Saskatchewan are each contributing up to $7,303,333 for this project.  WCRM158 Wastewater Management Authority will be responsible for all remaining costs of the project, which has a total eligible cost of $21,910,000.  The WCRM158 Wastewater Management Authority was created by the Town of White City and the RM of Edenwold No. 158 to deliver wastewater utility services to the communities of White City and the Emerald Park areas.
