REGINA — The Canadian government and the Province of Saskatchewan have announced upgrades to the Las Des Isles Sewage Lagoon in Meadow Lake Provincial Park in Saskatchewan are now complete.
The Government of Canada contributed $315,000 toward the upgrade, and the Government of Saskatchewan contributed $347,000. The project was completed in mid-May 2023, a release said.
“Reliable water and wastewater infrastructure protects the health and fosters the growth of our communities. I am pleased to see these upgrades as part of the Lac Des Isles project completed. The federal government’s investment in this project has helped to ensure the protection of the park’s natural heritage so that it may continue to be enjoyed by future generations,” federal Minister of Housing, Infrastructure and Communities Sean Fraser said in the release.
Upgrades involved relining the lagoon, increasing treatment capacity and re-routing emissions. The lagoon serves the Murray Doell and Sandy Beach campgrounds at Meadow Lake, which is located in northwestern Saskatchewan.
