The governments of Canada and Prince Edward Island have announced more than $14 million for wastewater projects in the province.

H. Wade MacLauchlan, Premier of Prince Edward Island, and Sean Casey, Member of Parliament for Charlottetown, on behalf of the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, announced $14,381,250 in combined funding for the installation of a wastewater delivery pipeline from Stratford to Charlottetown, the removal of the East Royalty lagoon, and the connection of East Royalty’s system to the Charlottetown Pollution Control Plant.

“These investments will open up further development opportunities along the capital region waterfront and provide residents with safe, reliable infrastructure,” said MacLauchlan.

The Stratford project will consolidate the town’s wastewater treatment with Charlottetown’s and create one central wastewater treatment plant on the Hillsborough River. The Government of Canada is contributing $5,462,500 to this project and the Government of Prince Edward Island is contributing $2,731,250. The Town of Stratford will cover the remaining project costs.

“We are pleased to arrive at a long-term Waste Water Treatment solution for Stratford. We have been actively working on a cost-effective solution for our waste water treatment needs, and we are optimistic that this solution will meet the needs of our growing community now and in the future,” said David Dunphy, Mayor of Stratford.

In Charlottetown, the East Royalty Lagoon will be replaced with a lift station and 3-kilometre sewer system that directs flows to the Charlottetown Pollution Control Plant. The Government of Canada is contributing $1,925,000 to this project and the Government of Prince Edward Island is contributing $962,500. The City of Charlottetown will cover the remaining project costs.

For the final project to connect East Royalty’s sewer system to the Charlottetown Pollution Control Plant, the Government of Canada is contributing $2,200,000 and the Government of Prince Edward Island is contributing $1,100,000. The City of Charlottetown will cover the remaining project costs.
