Up to $30 million is to be spent on improving the existing South End Water Pollution Control Centre in Winnipeg. The announcement on November 27 said the project will increase the plant’s capacity to deal with wastewater during peak periods in order to protect the Red River and Lake Winnipeg. The federal government is funding a third of the project’s costs through the new Green Infrastructure Fund.
In Toronto, the Government of Ontario has officially announced the construction of a new hospital at Keele Street and Wilson Avenue in the northwest of the city. The Humber River Regional Hospital and Infrastructure Ontario will begin a competitive procurement process to select a company to design, build, finance and maintain the new hospital.
In Newfoundland, the towns of Grand Bank and Fortune are to make $1.8 million in upgrades to their shared municipal water and sewer systems. The federal and provincial governments are contributing funding for the projects, which will involve a new computerized monitoring and control system, improvements to storage tanks, dredging and replacement of service pipes.
