OTTAWA — Federal officials recently announced that 21 new projects in Ottawa have been approved under the Government of Canada’s Clean Water and Wastewater Fund.
The federal government is providing up to 50 per cent of funding for these projects, which amounts to more than $15.8 million. The provincial government is providing up to 25 per cent, over $7.9 million, and the City of Ottawa will provide the balance.
According to a release, the City of Ottawa will use the investment for a water and sewer renewal project between Lavergne Street and Ste. Cecile Road in Vanier.
Funding will also go towards replacing aging equipment at water and wastewater treatment plants.
In addition to the projects in Ottawa, over $2.5 million in federal funding for 23 water and wastewater projects will benefit 15 other communities across Ontario.
