MP Marilyn Gladu welcomes Federal/Provincial funding for clean water and wastewater infrastructure projects across Sarnia-Lambton  

May 24, 2017

MP Marilyn Gladu welcomes today’s long-awaited announcement regarding the approval of a new list of water and wastewater projects under the Canada-Ontario Clean Water and Wastewater Fund (CWWF) agreement, which is designed to improve the safety and quality of water for Canadian families, while supporting a clean economy. As part of the bilateral agreement with Ontario, the following projects across Sarnia-Lambton have been approved for federal funding amounting to $5,464,352.

“After hearing from municipal leaders in March about the need for investment in our local wastewater infrastructure, I am pleased to welcome this positive news for our community.  These projects will enhance water quality across our region while also addressing capacity issues for some of our municipal partners.  We eagerly await news about Phase 2 of this program, and our smaller municipalities will look to be included on future intakes as well.  In addition, we are still waiting to learn about upcoming Trade Corridor funding that will be utilized by local proponents of the Oversized Load Corridor.”
