Fifty homes near Eagle Road and Highway 7, east of Mission, will benefit from a new $1.4 million project that will provide clean, reliable municipal drinking water service and fire protection.

The system will draw treated potable water from the existing Abbotsford-Mission supply main, which will require installing a pressure reducing valve station, approximately 10 km of water main and 50 service connections. Once completed, the system will meet all the requirements of the new Drinking Water Protection Act.

“Our government is pleased to support this important drinking water and fire protection project. Once complete, 50 homes will be connected to the Fraser Valley Regional District’s drinking water system and fire protection needs will also be met,” said Simon Gibson, MLA for  Abbotsford-Mission.

The project, announced Friday, was made possible thanks to joint funding from the governments of Canada and British Columbia through the Small Communities Fund. It is among 55 recently approved in B.C. that will collectively receive more than $128 million in funding.

“We are proud to invest in projects like upgrading the Hatzic East Water System in Fraser Valley that will benefit our community by improving much needed local infrastructure,” said Randy Kamp, MP for Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge-Mission.
