DISTRICT OF TAYLOR — A joint investment of over $3.1 million will go towards upgrading the District of Taylor’s wastewater treatment plant.

“We know that our Province is growing, and the District of Taylor is no exception. We want that growth to be safe, healthy, and sustainable. By investing in upgrades to the wastewater treatment plant, we’re helping to protect our environment while ensuring residents and visitors have access to the resources that they need,” said Anne Kang, Minister for Municipal Affairs.

Through this funding, a concrete sludge management facility will be built at the plant. Work includes new valves, pipes and pumps, associated electrical work, and the installation of a centrifuge to separate different liquids to reduce sludge accumulation. These upgrades will create a sustainable wastewater management system that will protect the health of the environment and residents.

“Investments in wastewater infrastructure are essential to keeping our waterways clean and our communities healthy. Our government is pleased to contribute to this new facility which will provide residents and surrounding communities with a more reliable wastewater system for years to come,” said Harjit S. Sajjan, Minister of International Development and Minister responsible for the Pacific Economic Development Agency of Canada, on behalf of the Honourable Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities
