How's Your Infrastructure Doing?
Infrastructure is important! After all, a functional infrastructure system is the physical foundation of a healthy, productive, and vibrant community. Without it, our lives would be a lot less convenient and a lot more difficult.
Municipalities right across Canada are dealing with aging infrastructure like pipes, roads, sidewalks, bridges and buildings. This is true right here in the MD of Wainwright.
