CRAVEN, SASK. – The governments of Canada and Saskatchewan are investing more than $51 million in 34 water and wastewater infrastructure improvement projects.  

The Village of Craven will receive funding to improve its water treatment facility and systems to comply with federal and provincial regulations. Work will include the installation of two new water supply wells and the integration of two filters into the existing facility, a release said.

Funding will also support the construction of a sewage lagoon spanning approximately 6.7 hectares in the Town of Vonda and the Town of Redvers which will get upgrades to their water treatment plant, including substituting the current water treatment process with two systems that are better at removing contaminants. The facility will also add more water storage and a back-up power source.
