The Municipality is receiving 75% funding for this project through the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund (CWWF) from Provincial and Federal governments. The remaining 25% will be funded by the Municipality of Meaford. The funding allows for the Municipality to implement the recommendations identified through the recently completed Master Servicing Plan and the Inflow and Infiltration Studies.
