Cost-sharing pilot program launched to help R.M.s and irrigation districts replace aging infrastructure

The Saskatchewan Water Security Agency is launching a $500-thousand pilot program aimed at helping R.M.s and irrigation districts cover costs of replacing aging infrastructure.

Infrastructure projects such as bridges, culverts, or culvert-style crossings that cross WSA channels are eligible for 50/50 cost sharing.

Minister Responsible for the Water Security Agency Jeremy Cockrill says the WSA is partnering with Rural Municipalities to alleviate the financial impact, while “safeguarding provincial infrastructure and protecting our communities.”

The Agency says “there is no deadline to apply to the program, and grants will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis.”

Costs incurred through March 31, 2024, will also be considered.
