Feds announce funding for new Cultus Lake wastewater treatment plant

CHILLIWACK, B.C. — The Government of Canada has announced $9.9 million in joint funding for a new wastewater treatment plant in Cultus Lake.

The federal government will invest $5.4 million in the project with the Government of British Columbia and Regional District of Fraser Valley providing $4.5 million and $3.6 million respectively, reads a news release.

Along with the construction of a new facility to provide secondary wastewater treatment, control algae growth and protect aquatic habitats, the project will include piping and rapid infiltration basin installations and provide odour control.

A pressurized sewer pipe will service the lands of the Soowahlie First Nations.

“Effective management of wastewater will have a significant impact on cultural eutrophication, reducing the impacts of human-caused nitrogen and phosphorus entering the ecosystem. It is critical that we continue to work together to keep Cultus Lake in balance,” said Christina Toth of the Cultus Lake Aquatic Stewardship Society in the release.
