Spences Bridge gets water system upgrade

Thompson Nicola Regional District approves spending up to $50,000 on the upgrade.

The Thompson Nicola Regional District has approved the expenditure of up to $50,000 from the federal Gas Tax Community Works Fund to go towards upgrading the Spences Bridge Water System.

The funding will help the Spences Bridge Water System, which is owned and operated by the TNRD, install a new water main along Deer Lane. The new installation will be able to provide a loop for the water system.

“The money is going to great use as it will reduce water usage and improve water quality for users of the Spences Bridge Water System,” said Steven Rice, Electoral Area I director.

The Deer Lane Water Main project falls under the Water and Wastewater category of the Gas Tax Agreement.

To date, the Thompson-Nicola Regional District has approved $2.71 million for 67 projects under the Federal Gas Tax Fund, which also provides funding in support of municipal infrastructure upgrades that contributes to cleaner air, cleaner water and reduced greenhouse-gas emissions.
