$600,000 infrastructure project set for September 14 launch
“The contractor will begin setting up temporary water to residents beginning the week of September 14,” explained Amber Hayter, senior engineering technician with the City.
Division Street will be closed with access to local traffic from Lindsay Street South to Wolfe Street.
The City has a lifecycle watermain replacement program that is committed to replacing all cast iron watermains, and those watermains that are undersized and do not meet current design standards.
Currently the watermain along Division Street is 100mm cast iron. Due to the age and material of cast iron watermains they are generally severely encrusted which reduces the flow of water and the ability to provide fire flows.
This project includes the replacement of approximately 400 meters of watermain along Division Street from Lindsay Street South to the dead end east of Wolfe Street with a new 150mm PVC watermain.
“The project will also include the replacement of water services to each resident from the watermain to property line and all restoration to existing or better condition,” Ms. Hayter said.
A section of sidewalk from the corner of Lindsay Street South and Division Street to approximately midblock between Lindsay Street South and Duke Street will be replaced as part of the project.
The completion date for the project is November 30, 2015.
