Logan Lake Gets Funding for Renewing Existing Water Infrastructure

District of Logan Lake

LOGAN LAKE - Residents of Logan Lake will benefit from improved drinking water infrastructure thanks to joint funding from the governments of Canada and British Columbia through the Small Communities Fund.

Contributions will be used to replace Logan Lake’s existing community water well. The project consists of drilling a new well and installing the necessary piping and pump to tie into the current water system. When completed, the new well will provide a reliable source of potable water. It is expected to deliver a volume of about 60 litres per second, which will be sufficient to meet the needs of area residents and businesses.

The project announced today is among 55 recently approved in British Columbia that will collectively receive more than $128 million in joint federal-provincial funding under the Small Communities Fund. These projects represent important investments in municipal infrastructure that maintain safe, healthy communities. Once complete, the work will significantly improve key municipal services for residents and help boost regional development.

Through the Small Communities Fund, the governments of Canada and British Columbia are working in partnership to provide funding for priority public infrastructure projects that deliver on local needs in  communities across the province that have fewer than 100,000 residents. These investments support job creation and economic growth, thus sustaining a high quality of life in small communities across British Columbia for years to come.
