Funding will help upgrade the Ryley bulk water fill station
The Claystone Waste Ltd. Board of Directors has approved a $50,000 community support grant to help construct much needed upgrades to the Ryley bulk water fill station that will help serve rural residents in the Beaver region.
The contribution from Claystone Waste is part of a tri-party agreement with the Highway 14 Regional Water Services Commission and the Bathgate Water Co-op. Each partner is committing $50,000 to fund construction of the $150,000 in upgrades.
The Ryley bulk water fill station is an important piece of water infrastructure for surrounding rural residents. Due to challenging geological conditions, surrounding rural residents have low-producing wells and rely on the water fill station to supplement their water needs. The project includes the construction of a second filling bay for commercial water users and upgrades to the existing fill bays and pumps to decrease fill times and improve the customer experience for rural residents.
The $50,000 grant from Claystone Waste is part of its ongoing commitment to provide tangible economic and community benefits back to the people of the Beaver region.
“Part of being a good neighbour is supporting projects and programs that can benefit the broader community,” says Meryl Whittaker, Chair of the Claystone Board of Directors. “We are proud to make this contribution in support of rural water users.”
“It’s part of our mandate to provide local employment, support community programming, and partner with organizations in the community to ensure that meaningful local projects such as the upgrade to the Ryley bulk water truck fill station can move forward,” Adds Whittaker. The upgrades to the Ryley bulk water fill station will be completed later this year.
