Council approves $600,000 infrastructure project
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.
“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,” said Amber Hayter, senior engineering technician with the City.
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 added.
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 project is scheduled to begin in early September and is expected to be completed by the end of November.
