The North Saskatchewan River Basin Council would like to promote a very important part of the Canadian Agriculture Partnership Funding which benefits us all by having clean, safe water wells in our area.
We all know the risks that old abandoned wells have in a community and to our underground water resources.
The CAP program will fund 90% of the eligible cost to decommission abandoned wells. It is a pre-approval application and they are able to come out and measure the wells and help with the necessary paperwork.
RM’s are also able to apply for this funding and help producers that don’t meet the criteria of having the $50,000 gross farm income.
They would like to promote and make aware of this opportunity and hopefully be approved to have these wells taken care of by fall.
