The federal and provincial governments announced on Wednesday funding to upgrade the sewage lagoon at Danielson Provincial Park. 

Both governments will be investing $365,000 to ensure the sewage lagoon complies with regulatory requirements. 

This work will include resizing the existing primary and secondary cells, the installation of a high-density Polyethylene liner, as well as improvements to the transfer station, fencing and access. 

The province says these improvements are critical to serving the needs of park visitors and better protecting the environment. 

The Government of Canada’s portion of the funding will be coming from the Green Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program. 

This was part of a joint announcement of more than $1.7 million for two green projects in the province. 

The other project is upgrades to the water system at Narrow Hills Provincial Park.
