This release was issued under a previous government.

The Alberta government has provided more than $24 million to projects that will help ensure Albertans from the County of St. Paul in the northeast to the Town of Fort Macleod in the southwest and many communities in between have access to safe drinking water and reliable, modern water/wastewater treatment systems.

“Our government is committed to investing in infrastructure that improves the quality of life in smaller communities. These projects will provide access to safe, efficient, and environmentally responsible water and wastewater systems for Alberta families.”

Brian Mason, Minister of Transportation
