Water Upgrades for the Town of Eastend
he governments of Canada and Saskatchewan have announced funding to upgrade the Town of Eastend's water treatment facility. The work includes expanding the existing building over a new underground water storage reservoir, improving water treatment, developing and rehabilitating groundwater wells, and installing new raw water supply mains. This project will support the Town's economic growth and development, improve the quality of drinking water and help protect local waterways and ecosystems for years to come. The governments of Canada and Saskatchewan are each contributing more than $2.1 Million to this project through the New Building Canada Fund's Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component-National and Regional Projects, representing nearly two-thirds of the estimated $7Million total project cost. The Town of Eastend will be responsible for all remaining costs. Thanks to funding from the governments of Canada and Saskatchewan, the Town of Eastend can keep moving forward on this important infrastructure project for our community, which will improve the quality of our drinking water, along with the efficiency and service reliability of our water treatment facilities, Town of Eastend Mayor Jesse Gordon said.
