Lake Country's waste-water treatment plant is getting an upgrade.
The District of Lake Country will receive $4.1 million from the federal government.
"Infrastructure investments are an important driver of economic growth and job creation, and I am pleased that the new facility will help protect the environment and the health of Lake Country residents," Kelowna-Lake Country MP Ron Cannan said Friday.
"Our government is proud to invest in the upgrades to Lake Country's waste-water facility to support the growing needs of the region for years to come."
The project will include energy-efficient, green technology and the latest scientific advancements.
"This important infrastructure upgrade project will advance public health and environmental protection throughout the region, and maintain the prosperity of the area for residents and visitors," said Lake Country Mayor James Baker.
The $7-million project includes $2.6 million from district reserves and borrowing.
The project also includes an additional $300,000 from RDCO's reserves.
"This project is an outstanding model for the use of advanced, energy-efficient green technology at the local level," said Norm Letnick, MLA for Kelowna-Lake Country.
Between 2007 and 2014, British Columbia will receive more than $1.48 billion from the Gas Tax Fund for local infrastructure.
