Kingsville, LaSalle Share Water Grants

Two Essex County municipalities are sharing in $166,000 in grants for water and wastewater projects.

The federal and provincial governments announced the funding for communities in southwestern Ontario.

Kingsville gets two of the grants, one for $75,000 will replace control equipments at the Lakeshore West Pollution Control Plant. The second grant for just over $42,000 is for replacement of the backup generator at the Kingsville Wastewater Treatment Lagoon main pumping station.

LaSalle is receiving just under $50,000 to create a dedicated emergency backup power supply for its sewage pumping stations.

Two of the projects begin in February, the the third next summer.
