Residents of Dundurn, Saskatchewan and surrounding communities, including Hanley, Riverside, Beaver Creek and Blackstrap Provincial Park, will receive funding for a rural water utility pipeline project that will construct a pipeline to provide safe drinking water to more than 1,800 households.

The governments of Canada and Saskatchewan will each invest up to $7,072,712 in the project. The Dundurn Rural Water Utility will contribute the balance of the total eligible project cost of up to $21,218,136.

The funding comes from the joint federal-provincial Building Canada Fund under the Communities Component.

  1. Hithere. As a resident of Hanley SK. I am very sorry to say I myself and rest of the community is very upset that we are all being charged $3300.00 for the water pipeline project. We already pay property taxes for clean drinking water and also very high water bills as it is. We have no choice but to pay this large amount of money and it will financially hurt our community. Where do our property taxes go?
