The Manitoba government is investing nearly $50 million for essential water and waste-water services projects under the Manitoba Restart Program
The funds come from the $500-million Manitoba Restart Program, an economic stimulus package designed to help restart Manitoba’s economy as the province moves forward through the COVID-19 pandemic. The new investments include approximately $43 million from the Department of Municipal Relations and $7 million from the Department of Conservation and Climate. More than 40 projects have been approved for multiple regions of the province including five projects to upgrade water and waste-water systems in the Asessippi, Grand Beach, Paint Lake and Whiteshell provincial parks.
The projects include upgrades to water treatment plants, sewage treatment lagoons and lift stations, as well as water distribution and collection systems. With local investments included, these projects will accomplish more than $80 million of water and waste-water infrastructure improvements through provincial and municipal funding, which supports local needs and provides significant employment at an important time for Manitoba’s economy.
