Funding Announced for Deer Lake
Premier Dwight Ball was joined by Gudie Hutchings, Member of Parliament for Long Range Mountains, and Dean Ball, Mayor of Deer Lake to announce funding for two water and wastewater projects in Deer Lake.
The two projects will replace 320 metres of water, sanitary, and storm sewer mains on Canal Road and the same on Garden Road. Roadways will be upgraded with new sidewalks and curbs. The projects will provide more reliable and safe infrastructure for residents and increase the capacity to manage wastewater and stormwater.
The governments of Canada and of Newfoundland and Labrador are each investing more than $813,000 in these projects through the Green Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada infrastructure plan. The Town of Deer Lake is contributing more than $615,000.
