CORNWALL, P.E.I.—The governments of Canada and Prince Edward Island are providing joint funding for two community infrastructure projects to improve water and wastewater infrastructure in the Town of Cornwall, P.E.I.

Funding will support the installation of 2,100 metres of new watermains, 18 new fire hydrants and new property services along Main Street. Several hundred metres of the new watermains will be used to expand the water distribution system and provide new services to 13 existing properties which is anticipated to provide increased access to potable water, improved water pressure and greater fire protection to the commercial areas of Main Street, indicates a release.

The project will also consist of the rehabilitation and repairs of the North River Lagoon Berm to extend its lifespan and support and protect the local lagoon system. Upgrades include excavating the lagoon and installing a synthetic clay liner for better protection against severe weather events.

The Government of Canada is investing more than $1.3 million in the projects through the Green Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program. The Government of Prince Edward Island is providing over $1.1 million and the municipality is contributing over $920,000.
