Federal funding was announced Wednesday morning for the construction of a new retention treatment basin for the Lou Romano Water Reclamation Plant in Windsor.

The new basin will include a new pumping station and outfall sewer. Once complete, the new basin will act as a buffer during storm surges and provide emergency back-up service in case of catastrophic failure at the Plant. This project is expected to offer improved protection from flooding to thousands of homes and help the City of Windsor better manage the impacts of severe storms.

The Government of Canada is investing over $32.7 million, and the City of Windsor is contributing more than $55,800,000.
