Wabush to Receive New Industrial Wastewater Treatment Plant

MP for Labrador, Yvonne Jones, Lisa Dempster, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Environment; and Ron Barron, Mayor of the Town of Wabush, announced funding for a new industrial wastewater treatment plant in Wabush.

This project involves the construction of a new wastewater treatment plant that will treat around 350 cubic meters of sewage per day.

This will improve the sewage collection system while ensuring wastewater is effectively treated to meet both federal and provincial standards.

Residents and businesses in Wabush will benefit from a modern, efficient wastewater treatment plant that will meet the community’s current and future needs.

The Government of Canada is investing more than $5 million to this wastewater treatment plant through the Green Infrastructure Fund of the Investing in Canada infrastructure plan.

The province of Newfoundland and Labrador is contributing more than $6.3 million to this project while the Municipality of Wabush is contributing more than $1.2 million.
