This includes surveying and project supervision and inspection for some of the municipal projects undertaken by this Department.

Clean Water and Wastewater Funds

In 2016 the Federal budget announced the establishment of a Clean Water and Wastewater Fund (CWWF) to assist Ontario communities with vital infrastructure funding.

The Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake received funding under the CWWF for five watermain upgrade projects:

  • Line 3 Road asbestos clay watermain upgrade
  • King Street cast iron watermain upgrade
  • Simcoe Street cast iron watermain upgrade, Centre Street cast iron watermain upgrade, and
  • Niagara-on-the-Lake Commons cast iron watermain upgrade.

The Federal government funded up to 50% of the project costs, the Provincial government provided up to 25% of the project costs, and the Town funded the remaining 25%. The five watermain projects were completed during the summer of 2018.
