The Canadian Government has announced joint funding to improve and expand the Greater Napanee Water Pollution Control Plant.
With the existing control plant currently operating at 94% capacity, improvements and expansion of the existing facilities’ system will allow for more advanced treatment, and allow the plant to meet increasing demands in the future. These improvements will protect the Napanee River’s ecosystem and benefit Greater Napanee residents for years to come.
The Government of Canada is investing more than $14 million under the Rural and Northern Infrastructure stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program. The Town of Greater Napanee will be responsible for the remaining costs of the project.
Through the Investing in Canada plan, the Government of Canada is investing more than $180 billion over 12 years in public transit projects, green infrastructure, social infrastructure, trade and transportation routes, and Canada’s rural and northern communities.
$26.9 billion of this funding is supporting green infrastructure projects, including $5 billion available for investment through the Canada Infrastructure Bank.
