The Ontario township of Ramara will receive up to $287,400 for upgrades to the Lagoon City Sewage Treatment Plant from the Government of Canada’s Municipal Rural Infrastructure Fund (MRIF).The federal contribution would be up to one-third of total eligible costs, which are estimated at $862,200.
“Maintaining a healthy and clean environment is directly related to the health and prosperity of communities and their residents, and is a priority for our Government,” said Bruce Stanton, Member of Parliament for Simcoe North. “Supporting the upgrading of the Lagoon City Sewage Treatment Plant is one of the ways we will deliver results for the residents of Ramara.”
The project consists of adding ultraviolet disinfection and a third clarifier to the Lagoon City Sewage Treatment Plant, as well as modifying and expanding the plant’s biosolids facility. These upgrades will increase the plant’s capacity and improve wastewater treatment.
