Residents in Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador communities to benefit from improved water and wastewater infrastructure

From: Infrastructure Canada

That is why governments have been taking decisive action to support families, businesses and communities, and continue to look ahead to see what more can be done.

Strategic investments in safe and modern water and wastewater infrastructure will play a key role in ensuring Eastern Newfoundland residents have access to reliable services to support a healthy community.

Today, Churence Rogers, Member of Parliament for Bonavista−Burin−Trinity, on behalf of the Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities; and the Honourable Derrick Bragg, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, announced more than $15.2 million in joint funding for 26 projects to safeguard public health and the environment in communities in Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador.

In New-Wes-Valley, the installation of 1800 meters of a waterman extension from Little Northwest Pond to Newtown and Templeman streets will increase resident’s access to potable water, and reduce maintenance costs at the town’s current sole water source, Carter’s Pond.
