The Farm and Ranch Water Infrastructure Program (FRWIP) is a program offered under the Canadian Agriculture Partnership (CAP), which provided producers funding to decommission abandoned or unused wells. This program is available to agriculture producers, First Nations, Rural Municipalities and agri-businesses.
Applicants are encouraged to contact an Agri-Environmental Technical Service (AETS) provider for assistance in completing the applications and pre-approval worksheets. The AETS contact in our area is Sarah Tranberg. She will work one-on-one with producers to assist in applying to the program and filling out your forms. Sarah can be reached at 306-529-5125 or [email protected]. To read more on decommissioning wells visit www.wsask.ca.
