BRIDGETOWN, NS – Bridgetown will increase its capacity to manage wastewater after a combined investment of $682,000 from the federal and provincial governments and the Municipality of the County of Annapolis.

Announced by MP Kody Blois, Minister John Lohr, and Warden Alex Morrisonthis project will extend wastewater collection services to a new seniors’ home re-development.

“Investments like the one made today in Bridgetown ensure that essential services like wastewater maintenance are in place. The extension of the Church Street sewer main is allowing for the growth and development of the community while we ensure our waterways and ecosystems are protected,” said Blois.

Wastewater collection infrastructure will be extended by approximately 550 metres. The extension will run from the existing sewer main termination on Church Street in Bridgetown to the Mountains and Meadows Home re-development site. The sewer main will run beside Church Street within existing or new easements.

“We are pleased to be part of a project that strives to enhance the quality of life for our residents,” said Alex Morrison, Warden for the Municipality of the County of Annapolis. “This project clearly demonstrates the good that can happen when all levels of government partner to invest in the improvement of infrastructure to advance community growth and development.”
