Wastewater upgrade for Lampman, Saskatchewan
The work includes constructing a new, two-cell lagoon and sewage force main, upgrading the current sewage pumping station, and decommissioning the existing lagoon.
Both federal and provincial funding has been committed to upgrade the wastewater treatment infrastructure for the Town of Lampman, located in the south east part of Saskatchewan, just northeast of Estevan.
Each level of government is contributing more than $1.6 million to the project with the Town responsible for all remaining costs.
The work includes constructing a new, two-cell lagoon and sewage force main, upgrading the current sewage pumping station, and decommissioning the existing lagoon for the town with a population of around 675 people.
“Upgrading these 55 year-old facilities will not only help safeguard public health, but will also preserve the local environment and lay important groundwork for future community development,” said Ralph Goodale Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, in a media release.
