The Canada Community Revitalization Fund (CCRF) is helping communities across Canada build and improve community infrastructure so they can rebound from the effects of the pandemic. 

The City of Yorkton received $450,000 through Prairies Economic Development Canada, to upgrade the dehumidifier and air exchange system at the Access Communications Water Park. 

"The City of Yorkton is thrilled to be a recipient of funding through the Canada Community Revitalization Fund. These funds, targeted towards dehumidification and air exchanging in the Access Communications Water Park, will help revitalize an existing community asset that sees over 80,000 individual visits each year. Our water park is a huge drawing card for our fine city. By updating the air quality systems we will be prolonging the life of our facility, reducing ongoing maintenance and repair costs, and ensuring safe, clean amenities for our residents and visitors to ENJOY," said Mayor Mitch Hippsley. 

The original dehumidifier and air exchange system was purchased in 1992, which was then retrofitted for the water park during renovations in 2004 and 2005. Upgrading the system will improve the quality of air in the facility and provide the appropriate humidity control to increase the lifespan of the Access Communications Water Park.
