An upgrade to the waste system at Danielson Provincial Park is coming after Saskatchewan's Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Laura Ross was part of the group on Wednesday that announced a joint investment of more than $1.7 million to support two green projects in the province.

The site at Lake Diefenbaker is set to receive an upgrade to its sewer lagoon in a move that will ensure the Provincial Park complies with regulatory requirements.

"This work will include resizing the existing primary and secondary cells, the installation of a High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) liner, as well as improvements to the transfer structure, dump station fencing and access." stated the release. "These critical improvements will serve the needs of park visitors and better protect the environment."

The other project announced was that Narrow Hills Provincial Park will also benefit from upgrades to its water system. The new system will make sure a safe and reliable drinking water supply remains available for generations to come.

The Governments of Canada and Saskatchewan are both investing $365,000 in the Danielson Provincial Park Sewage Lagoon Upgrade project and $493,000 in the Narrow Hills Provincial Park Water System Upgrade project.
