Water Supply Update
The WILD Water Commission has been approved for the construction costs of Phase I (getting the potable waterline from Stony Plain to Wabamun). This funding is a 90/10 split - 22.5M from the Province and 2.5M to be covered by the Commission (and its members). Construction has commenced on Phase I. The Commission is working on obtaining funding for the detailed design work for Phase II (which would see the waterline come up to the communities of Onoway, Alberta Beach, Yellowstone, Ross Haven and over to Alexis). This project has been broken into 3 Phases (3rd phase will see the waterline go north to the communities around Sandy Lake and Nakamun/Lac La Nonne areas), and while construction funding has only been secured at this time for Phase I the Province has approved the project as a whole, meaning funding will come for future phases we are just unsure of exactly when. In 2012/2013 we had 3 new communities join our Commission - Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation, Paul Band and the Summer Village of Kapasiwin. In a first of its kind deal, the Federal Government has already forwarded the funding to the Commission to cover the costs of getting the waterline to the two First Nation Communities - 2.2 Million.
