The feds and the province of P.E.I. have announced eight new projects to improve and protect water resources and wetlands.
Federal funding of $397,280 for these projects will be made under the Canada-Prince Edward Island National Water Program (CPEINWP), which focuses on environmental training, soil and water conservation projects, research on nitrogen leaching and better identification of the province’s wetlands.
The P.E.I. Department of Agriculture and the P.E.I. Department of Environment Energy and Forestry will provide $68,500 in in-kind support.
The projects are being funded under Tier Three of the CPEINWP. Tier Three projects support feasibility and environmental studies, expanded water infrastructure and increased knowledge of groundwater sources.
