Provincial Dollars For Grey-Bruce Projects

Millions of provincial dollars are flowing into areas of Bruce and Grey counties to help with water supplies.

Announcements were made today in Hanover, Owen Sound and South Bruce Peninsula reaffirming financial support for three projects.

In Hanover, work will be done on a local well to help the water supply. Well number two provides Hanover with about a quarter of its water.

In Owen Sound, work will be done on sanitary sewers in the north east quadrant of the city to help reduce flooding. That project will get $1.1-million from the province.

The Oliphant Water Treatment Plant in South Bruce Peninsula will be upgraded to improve the the quality and reliability of the local water supply.

The provincial part of the funding is coming through the Small, Rural and Northern Municipal Infrastructure Fund, which is providing $100-million to help municipalities across the province build and maintain critical infrastructure.
