The governments of Ontario and Canada are investing over $8.2 million in local water infrastructure projects, Perth-Wellington MPP Randy Pettapiece announced Friday.

“Safe and accessible water is essential,” said Pettapiece. “This investment will improve local drinking water infrastructure, further protecting our drinking water and wastewater systems. Without these projects, small communities like ours would not be able to prepare for future growth.”

This investment will come from Green Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program, a cost-shared, application-based infrastructure funding opportunity.
