The Regional District of North Okanagan has secured a grant to help with a sustainability project.
“During the recent UBCM Convention, the Honourable Selina Robinson, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, presented a $10,000 cheque to the Regional District of North Okanagan under the Infrastructure Planning Grant program to complete Phase II of the North Okanagan Wastewater Recovery Project,” says an RDNO release.
Board chair Bob Fleming says Phase II will advance the vision of a shared wastewater recovery system for the Swan Lake Industrial Corridor, OKIB lands at the north end of Swan Lake, and the Spallumcheen South-East Industrial Area.
“This timely and important financial contribution from the provincial government indicates both interest and concrete support to enable us to move this project forward,” says Fleming, who is also Electoral Area “B” Director.
Urban Systems Limited will undertake the Phase II study to refine technical aspects of the project, develop a sustainable service model (finance and governance) and develop a communications strategy to educate and inform community members.
