WINNIPEG - A new water treatment facility will be built to provide water to an inland port in Winnipeg and surrounding municipalities.

Diane Gray, the president and CEO of Centreport Canada, says this is crucial to the complex's expansion.

The provincial and federal government announced funding Wednesday for the project, which is expected to be operating late next year or early 2016.

The plant will provide clean water to the municipalities of Cartier, Grey, Headingley, Portage, Rockwood, Rosser, St. Francois Xavier and to the Headingley Correctional Centre.

Centreport says it offers just over eight thousand hectares of high-quality, affordable industrial land and access to tri-modal transportation including three Class 1 railways — Canadian National, Canadian Pacific and Burlington Northern Santa Fe.
