Haileybury Water Plant Upgrade Gets Extra Funding

McGuinty Government Helps Communities Provide Safe Drinking Water

The quality of the Haileybury drinking water supply will be assured for many years to come as a result of upgrades undertaken over the past few years to the local water treatment plant.

As part of its ongoing commitment to support the modernization of drinking water infrastructure in northern communities, the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC) is providing additional funding of $55,899 towards this project through its Infrastructure and Community Development Program.

An improved drinking water system supports healthier living and will help attract new residential, commercial and industrial activity to the community.

Quick Facts

  • Haileybury’s Water Treatment Plant supplies drinking water to approximately 1,745 households.
  • 90 per cent of Haileybury was destroyed during the Great Fire of October 4, 1922, one of the ten worst natural disasters in Canadian history.
