This project is to recapitalize the infrastructure responsible for potable water distribution and waste water collection in Newman Sound Campground. It is part of a larger project that encompasses other areas, including Malady Head Campground and Salton's Brook.


The replacement and modernization of underground infrastructure will allow for more efficient services, such as water and sewer, to the campground.

Visitor Impacts:

Visitor and worker safety is a top priority for Parks Canada. Visitors to Terra Nova National Park are advised to exercise caution, respect all on-site signage and barriers, and to follow instructions from Parks Canada staff or contractors.
