Feds fund light­house re­pairs, fuel tanks

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - PROVINCE -

Some of P.E.I.’s light­houses will be get­ting re­pairs thanks to fund­ing from the fed­eral gov­ern­ment an­nounced Thurs­day. The Fish­eries and Oceans Depart­ment will spend about $500,000 on five light­houses around the province and for the in­stal­la­tion of fuel stor­age tanks at the Char­lot­te­town Air­port. Those tanks are for the Cana­dian Coast Guard. Some of the work will in­clude re­mov­ing lead paint and re-paint­ing the light­houses in Bed­eque, New Lon­don, North Cape, North Rus­tico and the Haszard Point Rear Range. The North Rus­tico light­house will also get other re­pairs, in­clud­ing re­plac­ing doors, in­stalling a waste dis­posal sys­tem and up­grad­ing the heat­ing sys­tem. At the air­port three stor­age fuel tanks will be re­placed for fuel to ser­vice the coast guard’s he­li­copter.
