ELGIN-MIDDLESEX-LONDON — The residents of Malahide Township will soon have better access to modern, reliable water and wastewater services thanks to an investment by the Ontario government, MPP Jeff Yurek announced today.

 

“Our government is committed to making life easier for the people of this province,” said Yurek. “There are few things more important than a reliable, safe supply of water.”

 

The investment will fund a project to slip-line existing storm water culverts located along Springerhill Road and Calton Line.

 

The new funding was announced jointly by the province and the Government of Canada, under the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund (CWWF), which will fund more than 1,300 projects and provide $1.1 billion in total investments.

 

These projects help the people of Ontario by supporting their critical water, wastewater and storm water rehabilitation and modernization projects.

 

“Investing in water and wastewater infrastructure will result in safer, cleaner water for people to drink, preserve local ecosystems and protect waterways,” said Monte McNaughton, Ontario’s Minister of Infrastructure.

 

“Our Made-in-Ontario Environment Plan is committed to protecting the safety of our province’s waterways through targeted investments in our storm and wastewater management systems,” said Rod Phillips, Ontario’s Minister of Environment, Conservation and Parks. “These investments will make our infrastructure more resilient, improve facility performance and better protect our lakes and rivers.”
