Canada and British Columbia invest in water infrastructure improvements
Whistler, British Columbia, May 26, 2023 — Today, Patrick Weiler, Member of Parliament for West Vancouver – Sunshine Coast – Sea to Sky Country, the Honourable Anne Kang, B.C. Minister of Municipal Affairs, and His Worship Jack Crompton, Mayor of the Resort Municipality of Whistler, announced a joint investment of more than $16.1 million to support four water infrastructure projects across British Columbia.
In Whistler, this investment will support the construction of a new water treatment plant in the south. It will also enable the replacement of an existing well pump, the decommissioning of one well and two chlorine dosing systems, and the construction of approximately 600 metres of new water main. This work will ensure wastewater is properly treated and improve the connection with the Whistler Main system.
Additionally, this investment will support three water infrastructure projects in the District of Lantzville, the Village of Kaslo, and the Village of New Denver. These upgrades will improve water treatment services in these communities, protect local environments, and build more resilient communities.
By investing in infrastructure, the Government of Canada is growing our country’s economy, building resilient communities, and improving the lives of Canadians.
