Wastewater system upgrades in Bridgewater and a contaminated soil clean-up at a former school in Bayport each received funding commitments August 1 from Ottawa and the province.
For the Main Street of the South Shore, it amounts to $4 million toward replacing a pumping station and installing 1,000 metres worth of piping.
Meanwhile, the former Riverport and district Elementary School land, off Highway 332, will be subject to a remediation project as contaminants found on site will be removed. This project receives just shy of $795,000.
The promises of taxpayer cash were made during a news conference in Bridgewater.
