Federal and Yukon governments invest in Watson Lake wastewater collection

WATSON LAKE, YUKON – A combined $5.1 million investment from the federal government and the Government of Yukon will build a new sewage lift system for the Town of Watson Lake.

Lift stations transport wastewater from their water source to their treatment area, in this case the Watson Lake lagoon, a release said.

“This lift station is an important step in this land development project, aimed at providing more housing in the growing Town of Watson Lake,” said Yukon Minister of Community Services Richard Mostyn in a statement.

The lift station will support new residential development, including 43 new Frances Avenue lots, which are currently under construction, the release said.

Under the Frances Avenue and Land Distribution Agreement announced in 2023, the Government of Yukon will make 24 of the 43 lots available to the general public. Liard First Nation will hold title to 18 lots and the Town of Watson Lake will hold title to one. The sanitary lift station for this project will also support a second phase of future development.

The federal government is investing $2.25 million through the Green Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program and Yukon is investing $2.87 million.
