CLARENCE-ROCKLAND AND THE NATION – August 26, 2020 – The Municipalities of Clarence-Rockland and The Nation are going ahead with the drinking water distribution project. The agreement between the two municipalities will be for 20 years, with an option to extend.
The project involves installing approximately 10 km of water main between the Cheney water tower, along Indian Creek Road, and The Nation’s existing water treatment plant, on Limoges Road, in Limoges. This will provide a better service to the citizens of the two municipalities, in addition to allowing growth.
The start of the construction of the new water main from Cheney to Limoges is scheduled for summer / fall 2021, and construction costs are estimated at $ 10 million dollars. The Nation municipality will provide an initial sum of $ 2.6 million dollars to Clarence-Rockland for the existing infrastructure.
“This agreement will allow us to provide a much better water supply for our residents. I would like to thank our water and sewer manager, Mr. Doug Renaud, and the executive committee who did a masterful job. Thank you also to the City of Clarence-Rockland for creating this regional water supply system, which is great news for users. A big thank you to the teams of the two municipalities involved, “stated the Mayor of La Nation, François St-Amour.
“The City of Clarence-Rockland is proud of this historic agreement with La Nation. The Ottawa River is an excellent source of water, and we are pleased to work with our neighbours to ensure that residents in Limoges have access to good quality drinking water. In addition, this project will generate supplementary income for our municipality,” added Guy Desjardins, mayor of Clarence-Rockland.
