ST GEORGE’S, N.L. — The St. George Region in Newfoundland is on the receiving end of money from the provincial and federal governments for nine recreation and water infrastructure projects.
To improve access to modern recreation infrastructure, Flat Bay will see the completion of the Calm Water Mi’kmaq Park pond area; Bay St. George South will improve the skating rink in Robinsons and the MacKay’s community playground; and Pasadena will build a splash pad near Pasadena Place.
St. George’s and Flat Bay East water systems will be upgraded with the drilling of a new well that will connect to the existing water system, states a release.
In Massey Drive, 21 homes on Lady Diana Crescent will have access to a potable water and a sanitary system with the installation of 210 metres of sewer and water lines.
Pasadena will also improve its water infrastructure by installing a waterline to connect properties on Tipping Drive to the water system and the town will also build a new dam at Blue Gulch Pond to improve the drinking water quality for residents, adds the release.
Through the Community, Culture and Recreation Infrastructure and the Green Infrastructure Streams of the Investing in Canada infrastructure plan, the Government of Canada is investing more than $1.5 million in the projects. The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador is providing over $1.2 million and the municipalities and communities are contributing over $1 million.
