Prince Rupert has been given funding by the upper levels of government for phase 2 of replacing Woodworth Dam.
Mayor Lee Brain says the dam is over 100-years-old and he’s glad to see the projects are moving forward.
He says the federal and provincial involvement is extremely important to ensuring the project gets done.
The first phase of the project is expected to move ahead soon with the second phase to begin next year.
The third and final phrase is expected to go head in 2019.
