Canada and New Brunswick invest in water supply infrastructure

  • Canada and New Brunswick invest in water supply infrastructure

About the entity

Government of Canada is the Government of Canada's digital presence. The goal of this site is to make it easier for Canadians to find and understand Government of Canada information and services.

From roads and buildings, to water systems – strong infrastructure is key to building stronger communities. Investments in safer and more efficient water services helps keep our communities healthy, green and sustainable.

That is why the Government of Canada is investing over $2.2 million to upgrade the water supply infrastructure in two rural New Brunswick communities through the Green Infrastructure Stream (GIS). As Canada moves toward a strong recovery, these projects will help communities remain great places to live, work and play, and ensure long-term infrastructure performance.

With funding from GIS:

  • The Village of Saint-Hilaire will benefit from increased access to potable water by drilling 3-4 exploratory wells, constructing 1-3 new wells, and excavating the land in order to connect the new wells to an existing pumping station. Once completed, this project will allow the community to meet water consumption demands and help remove a boil water advisory.
  • The Village of Tide Head will see upgrades to several hundreds of metres of potable water line, sanitary sewer line and storm sewer line along a main road, to help protect the water supply and provide higher quality drinking water to residents.
  • Tide Head residents will also benefit from replacing the potable water reservoir, which will increase storage capacity by 300,000 gallons, reduce water pump cycling, and increase the volume of water ready for consumption.
