Flood protection projects include Harrison

Harrison Hot Springs has received funding to help pay for a new pump station.

The provincial and federal governments are helping to cover the cost of replacing the Miami River Dike Pump Station. The pump, motor and associated infrastructure will be upgraded to meet current environmental and design standards, a project earmarked at $1,720,800.

The announcement of the funding also mentioned upgrades for flood mitigation in Greendale, Cultus Lake, Hope, and Nicomen Island, for a total of $5.3 million.

“This is critical infrastructure for the safety of our community,” said Harrison Mayor Leo Facio. “While we benefit from living in a spectacular natural setting, there are always associated risks. This funding enables us to reduce this risk for our residents and visitors coming to Harrison Hot Springs. It is partnerships with the federal and provincial Governments that make these types of projects a reality for small communities.”
