Government money keeps on pouring into the South Okanagan for new infrastructure projects, and the small community of Faulder is once again benefitting from the cash.
B.C.'s Towns For Tomorrow program will send $653,000 to the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen for projects including the Faulder Water Well project.
"Because of this generous donation, the cost of this project will decrease for Faulder residents," said Penticton mayor and Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen chair Dan Ashton.
The small community west of Summerland received good news two weeks ago, when it was announced it would receive $610,000 in funding from the provincial and federal governments to build a new water treatment facility. Faulder's water was receiving attention due to trace elements of uranium found that were in excess of government standards.
