Ted Falk, Member of Parliament for Provencher, is pleased with Government of Canada funding for three new infrastructure projects in Southeastern Manitoba through the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund (CWWF).

The Village of St-Pierre-Jolys will receive federal funding of $1,500,000 for its lagoon expansion. The Municipality of Emerson-Franklin will receive federal funding of $1,750,000 for the Arnaud and area potable water supply project and St. Malo Provincial Park will receive federal funding of $325,000 for a water treatment plant.

“Investments in local public infrastructure strengthens communities and improves the quality of life for residents of Provencher,” said MP Falk. “These new projects will have long-term, positive impacts on St-Pierre-Jolys, Arnaud and St. Malo and will take much of the financial burden off of local residents.”

Infrastructure Canada launched the CWWF to provide communities with more reliable water and wastewater systems so that both drinking water and effluent meet legislated standards. This Fund will improve the safety and quality of water for Canadian families, while supporting a clean economy.
