The Town of Tecumseh’s Cedarwood Sanitary Pump Station is receiving upgrades with an investment of $3.6 million through the Disaster Mitigation and Adaptation Fund (DMAF).

This includes reinforcing existing infrastructure with modern materials. The pump station was built in 1972 and serves a 920-hectare area in Tecumseh. Modernizing it will help keep the residents safe by mitigating basement flooding risks amidst the impacts of climate change in Tecumseh.

“On my very first day as the Member of Parliament for Windsor—Tecumseh, I met with Mayor McNamara to discuss key priorities for the Town of Tecumseh. With severe weather events on the rise, infrastructure funding from the Disaster Mitigation and Adaptation Fund was outlined as a critical need,” said Irek Kusmierczyk, MP for Windsor-Tecumseh. “Since 2019, we have now delivered over $15 million in federal funding to modernize the Town’s flood resiliency infrastructure and protect residences and businesses from the effects of flooding. This investment builds on the terrific collaboration between our federal government and the Town that has helped deliver several record investments for the residents of Tecumseh.”

The federal government is investing $3,600,000 in the reconstruction and upgrade of the Cedarwood Sanitary Pump Station through the Disaster Mitigation and Adaptation Fund (DMAF).

“We are thrilled to see the federal government’s investment in the Cedarwood Sanitary Pump Station. This $3.6 million funding is not just an upgrade to our infrastructure but a crucial step towards enhancing the resilience and sustainability of our community. By modernizing this pump station, we are significantly reducing the risk of basement flooding and other climate-related impacts,” said Gary McNamara, Tecumseh Mayor.
