The City of Warman to Benefit from Green Infrastructure Investment
For release September 5, 2019
It was announced on September 4th at a press conference at Gordie Howe Sports Centre in Saskatoon that the City of Warman is one of 12 Saskatchewan communities to receive federal and provincial funding for infrastructure improvements. The sewage treatment lagoon expansion and improvement project will not only increase the wastewater treatment capacity to accommodate future community growth but will also improve the overall effluent discharge quality to meet Environment Canada’s regulations.
Details of the sewage treatment lagoon expansion and improvements include: increasing the depth of the existing primary and secondary lagoon cells, installing an aeration system in the primary and secondary cells, constructing a blower building for the aeration system, and constructing a discharge pipeline to the South Saskatchewan River. The project is estimated to take three years to complete.
“The City of Warman has been blessed with exponential growth the last few years and we are fortunate that this growth has made us a vibrant and thriving community,” says Mayor Sheryl Spence. “With growth comes challenges, and we are pleased to receive this much-anticipated funding from both the federal and provincial governments to help the City of Warman build infrastructure in a sustainable way.”
The project will cost $18.1 million. Funding from the federal government totals $7.24 million, with $6,032,730 coming from provincial contributions. The municipality will contribute $4,827,270.
“Warman is a community that is committed to environmental sustainability,” says Mayor Spence. “That is why we are investing in our wastewater treatment system to ensure a cleaner, safer environment for residents, visitors and aquatic life, now and into the future.”
