The Capital Regional District is making a second attempt to get federal funding to connect the Kemp Lake Water Distribution system to the region’s waterworks structure.

KLWD needs to improve its water system to meet the Vancouver Island Health Authority’s drinking water guidelines.

The project would see the Kemp Lake water main extended along West Coast to the CRD water system at Erinan Boulevard.

Ottawa rejected the Small Community Grant application last year on the $1.8-million project, of which $1.6 million is expected to be covered by senior governments.

Kemp Lake Water Distribution has been working with the CRD and VIHA for more than five years on the project with several engineering and water quality studies undertaken.

The KLWD looked at several options including building a new water treatment plant and hooking up to the CRD system. Two years ago, it was decided to work within the CRD system.
