Phase 2 of the Pigeon Lake Regional Wastewater System is approved for cost-shared grant funding.

The County of Wetaskiwin, as a managing partner of the wastewater project, will receive up to $6.4 million from combined provincial and federal sources, via the Government of Canada’s Clean Water and Wastewater Fund and the provinces Water for Life Fund.

CAO Frank Coutney informed council during its Nov. 1 meeting the project is required to be completed by March 2018. “At this point here we don’t think March 2018 is a goal that’s unattainable.”

At this time the design of the project is being constructed so the county can move forward with tendering and awarding Phase 2. The county is also looking at acquiring property for the lift station.
