The Federal and Provincial Governments announced over $13.6 million in federal funding for 221 water and wastewater projects in 86 communities across Ontario. This investment is part of an agreement between Canada and Ontario under the Canada-Ontario Clean Water & Wastewater Fund (CWWF) agreement. The 221 projects across Ontario that have been approved for federal funding amounts to $19,219,318.
34 projects were announced this morning in Thunder Bay. A city-wide stormwater infrastructure inventory assessment, as well as design and construction of 16 storm water management facilities. The region will also benefit from the construction of new storm sewers and outfalls to improve stormwater passage and capacity. These projects are essential to keeping our waterways clean and our communities healthy and livable.
The Government of Canada is providing Ontario with over $569 million under CWWF (up to 50 percent of the eligible project costs). The provincial government is providing up to $270 million (up to 25 percent of total eligible project costs). The recipients will provide the balance of funding.

A study will also be funded to identify actions necessary to address Trihalomethanes. The total funding received for these projects is $403,977 (Federal $269,318 and $134,659 Provincial).
