The Battleford lagoon upgrade project is now officially underway.

A sod-turning ceremony took place at the site Oct. 9, attended by Mayor Ames Leslie, Battlefords MLA Herb Cox, and other representatives including Phyllis Paddy from Thunderchild First Nation.

The lagoon upgrade project is estimated at $5.2 million dollars, and has been in the works for two years. Initially the project slated to be funded entirely from the town’s reserves. Instead, the town received matching funds from the feds and the province. The federal government’s funding is $2,106,000, the province is in for $1,754,825, and the town the remaining $1,404,176.

The funding came as good news to town officials because it means the town can find other uses for the $4 million that the town would otherwise have spent on the lagoon project.
