The communities of Irishtown-Summerside, Lark Harbour and Cox’s Cove will soon see some improvements in water and sewer services.
The provincial government announced a total of $358,000 in capital works funding for the three communities on Thursday.
The money will be shared with:
* $195,000 going to Cox’s Cove for the replacement of the sewer lift station;
* $88,000 for Lark Harbour for the completion of a water supply development project; and
* $75,000 for Irishtown-Summerside for a chlorination booster.
Funding for these projects is cost-shared, with the province providing 90 per cent of the funding and the communities of Irishtown-Summerside, Cox’s Cove and Lark Harbour covering their 10 per cent share.
“The provincial government places a priority on water and sewer projects throughout Newfoundland and Labrador to support the sustainability of our rural communities,” said Municipal Affairs minister Steve Kent. “Through this investment of $358,000 the communities of Irishtown-Summerside, Lark Harbour and Cox’s Cove will benefit from improved water and sewer infrastructure.”
