Canada, NS Invest in Wastewater/Water Upgrades

Infrastructure Canada

Today, Mike Kelloway, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard and Member of Parliament for Cape Breton-Canso; the Honourable Allan MacMaster, Deputy Premier of Nova Scotia and Member of the Legislative Assembly for Inverness; and Bonny MacIsaac, Warden of the Municipality of the County of Inverness, announced a combined investment of more than $24 million to upgrade water and wastewater infrastructure in Inverness.

This investment will go towards the replacement of the County’s aging wastewater treatment facility in Inverness with a new, more efficient facility which will protect the health of surrounding waters. It will also enable the County to upgrade the sanitary collection of wastewater and water distribution systems on Central Avenue and on Veteran’s Memorial Court.

Replacing and upgrading water and wastewater infrastructure in Inverness builds on the Government of Canada’s commitment to reduce water pollution and to provide clean water to Canadians.

By investing in infrastructure, the Government of Canada is growing our country’s economy, increasing the resiliency of our communities and improving the lives of Canadians.
