The Manitoba government is spending more than $1 million to improve water infrastructure in rural municipalities.

Dauphin, the RM of Clanwilliam-Erickson and the town of Roblin will benefit from planned water and waste-water systems.

Municipal Government Minister Drew Caldwell announced Wednesday that Dauphin is receiving $750,000 to upgrade the water supply pipeline and the Brown Avenue pumping station. Both projects are under construction and expected to be completed in the spring of 2015.

The RM of Clanwilliam-Erickson will see $150,000 for a new radio frequency water metering system that will accurately measure consumption.

Roblin received $125,000 last year for a new pumping station to divert concentrate water from a new membrane water treatment plant to Shell River.
