Senior governments are contributing money to a water treatment project that will help remove seasonal boil water advisories for a number of properties on Denman Island.
The federal portion is $798,000 while the B.C. government is kicking in $664,933. The Comox Valley Regional District is contributing $532,067.
“This is another great news (story) for Denman Island, and we thank the Government of Canada and province of B.C. for their contributions,” said Daniel Arbour, Area A director of the CVRD.
In the coming weeks and months, he said district staff will engage with Graham Lake trustees and Denman residents “to make this the best project possible.”
The treatment plant is one of four water/wastewater projects planned in B.C. On Tuesday, Dec. 21, government announced more than $19.2 million in joint funding for the projects.
