Clean Water and Wastewater Fund (CWWF)

In January 2016, Environmental Services started construction on the 16 projects that received provincial and federal funding as part of the CWWF program. Each of these projects benefits either the water, wastewater or stormwater systems in the city.

Reading material related to these initiatives can be found in the table below. More information on how the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund is helping Vaughan is in the news release.

See where all these projects across the city take place with an interactive map.
