Aglukkaq turns fiscal faucet, pours water money into Rankin
Hamlet to get booster station, waste-water treatment scheme
Nunavut MP Leona Aglukkaq visited Rankin Inlet July 8 to announce $10.9 million in upgrades to the hamlet’s water system.
The money, to be split between the federal and territorial governments, will pay for a water booster station and a waste-water treatment system.
“This two-phased project will provide the required infrastructure for future housing development in Rankin Inlet,” Lorne Kusugak, the Government of Nunavut’s minister of Community and Government Services said in a news release.
“Sustainable water and waste-water infrastructure is vital in establishing and constructing these new homes as well as the Rankin Inlet correctional facility.”
