CAMPGROUND ELECTRIFICATION UPGRADES FOR TWO PROVINCIAL PARKS

Two provincial parks will see upgraded campground electrification this year.



Echo Valley Provincial Park is upgrading its 50 electrified campsites at Aspen

Campground. Pike Lake Provincial Park is upgrading its 89 electrified

campsites at the Pike Lake Campground.



"These upgrades will ensure our electrified campsites comply with the Canadian

Electrical Code," Environment and Resource Management Minister Buckley Belanger

said. "Safety of our park visitors continues to be a priority for us."



The money for these projects comes from the province's four-year $120 million

Centenary Fund. Total cost of these projects is $320,000; $100,000 for Echo

Valley and $220,000 for Pike Lake.



This funding supplements current provincial park infrastructure spending of

$2.5 million per year. The Centenary Fund was developed so important capital

projects can be completed as Saskatchewan approaches its Centennial in 2005.
