WILLIAMS LAKE, B.C. – A new water treatment plant is on the way for the community of Williams Lake in British Columbia.
The governments of Canada, British Columbia and Williams Lake are investing more than $24.3 million to install approximately 850 metres of new watermain. The new water treatment plant will include a chlorination and filtration system that will lower manganese levels in the drinking water.
“Williams Lake has been focused on this project for a number of years and we are pleased that this partnership funding will help to deliver. A new water treatment plant will serve our community for decades into the future and is an essential investment in the Cariboo region,” said Williams Lake Mayor Surinderpal Rathor in a statement.
The federal government is investing $9.7 million in the project, with B.C. investing $8.1 million and Williams Lake contributing $6.4 million.
