The Proposed Project

Shawanaga First Nation proposed to construct a new 216 m2 Water Treatment Plant (WTP) at the Well 4 Site. This project will also include constructing a new 250mm watermain that will connect to the existing distribution system and extend 1,600m along Village Road to the new WTP. Furthermore, approximately 2,510m of existing watermain located on Shebeshekong Road will be upgraded from 75mm to 250mm. Constructing the WTP will also provide the opportunity for additional development along Village Road due to provision of single-phase power (extended to new WTP) and potable water.
