Higher quality drinking water for Elrose, Kyle and Sask Landing
Swift Current, SK – David Anderson, MP for Cypress Hills-Grasslands today announced the completion and grand opening of the Saskatchewan Landing Regional Water Supply project. The 42 km long main water pipeline, water treatment plants, and 700 kilometers of connecting lateral rural water pipelines, will provide safe drinking water to nearly 2,500 people in Southwest Saskatchewan.
“Our Government has invested in these projects to ensure the region has the capacity to provide good-quality drinking water to its residents, now and in the future. This was a major undertaking and illustrates the positive impact of partnership at all levels of government. The expanded water supply system provides a solid foundation for west-central Saskatchewan to grow, creating jobs and economic prosperity,” Anderson said.
The mainline Saskatchewan Landing water pipeline was funded through the former Canada Strategic Infrastructure Fund; with the Government of Canada and the Saskatchewan Landing Regional Water Pipeline Utility (SLRWPU) each providing $10.19 million for the project.
The Governments of Canada and Saskatchewan also each invested $8.06 million through the Communities Component of the Building Canada Fund (BCF-CC) for the lateral rural water pipelines project that taps into the main pipeline, as well as for water storage and a truckfill system in Elrose.
