Matachewan Upgrades Its Community Water System

McGuinty Government Creating New Jobs And Local Economic Growth

The Township of Matachewan is upgrading its water distribution system to improve drinking water quality and help create jobs and opportunities for new business development in the community.

With support from the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC), the Township will enhance the existing water distribution system.  Water mains will also be extended to the industrial park and across the Montreal River to service businesses that currently rely on private wells.

The project will create approximately 50 jobs during its construction phase. It is part of the government's five-year Open Ontario plan to create jobs and economic opportunities in Northern Ontario.
