Today, the Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship and Member of Parliament for Central Nova, Larry Harrison, Member of the Legislative Assembly for Colchester-Musquodoboit Valley, and His Worship George Lloy, Mayor of the Town of Stewiacke, announced more than $6.2 million in joint funding to improve the Town’s water and wastewater infrastructure.
This funding will enable the replacement of 3.7 kilometres of water, stormwater and wastewater infrastructure on three streets in Stewiacke: Riverside Avenue, Lewis Street and Pleasant Hill. These upgrades will help expand the system’s capacity and connect more houses to the municipal drinking water system.
A safer, more efficient and more reliable water and wastewater system will ensure the Town of Stewiacke remains a great place to live.
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.
