Province lines up water & waste projects for 2021/22

The recent announcement of water and waste projects out of Manitoba’s economic re-start program holds about $30 million worth of work for the heavy construction industry.

The news release, issued March 26 says a total $50 million will be invested in water and waste-water projects, approximately $43 million from the Department of Municipal Relations and $7 million from the Department of Conservation and Climate. More than 40 projects have been approved across the province.

“We are glad to see these critical projects rolling out this year, not just for Manitoba’s economic revitalization, a much-needed recovery from the pandemic shutdown, but also because they are vital to protecting the supply of clean water for Manitobans and to ensure we are prepared for the challenges of climate change,” said MHCA President Chris Lorenc.
