The Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of the District of Bar­ring­ton is one of 10 mu­nic­i­pal units in Nova Sco­tia to re­ceive fund­ing for wa­ter and waste­water projects through the Pro­vin­cial Cap­i­tal As­sis­tance Pro­gram.

Bar­ring­ton mu­nic­i­pal­ity will re­ceive $92,119 to­ward the re­place­ment of the clar­i­fier at the Brass Hill Treat­ment Plant. The to­tal project is ex­pected to cost $250,000.

Other South Shore com­mu­ni­ties to re­ceive fund­ing un­der the pro­gram in­clude a $37,500 waste­water treat­ment and col­lec­tion study for the Town of Lunen­burg and $61,250 for the Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Ch­ester, which will go to­ward an en­gi­neer­ing de­sign to ex­pand waste­water fa­cil­i­ties.

The Pro­vin­cial Cap­i­tal As­sis­tance Pro­gram al­lows the province to con­trib­ute funds to­ward high­cost, pri­or­ity mu­nic­i­pal in­fra­struc­ture projects. This year’s in­vest­ment by the province is $690,000.
