2019 Annual Watermain Replacement

August 9, 2019 update:

Work on Government Road is expected to begin the week of August 13. 

The Annual Watermain Upgrade Project is aimed at ensuring that the District’s watermain infrastructure is maintained and upgraded in order to meet the needs of the community. Projects are selected and prioritized from the Water Capital Plan and Public Works staff feedback

2019 projects include: 

  1. Diamond Head Road: Replacing an old watermain which will improve fire flows and decrease maintenance. This work is being coordinated with the annual paving program.
  2. Garibaldi Avenue Looping: Ensuring adequate fire flow water volumes for this neighbourhood.
  3. Highway 99 at Stawamus Drive: Abandoning approximately 750m of unserviceable watermain off Highway 99 and installing a water meter for tracking industrial water usage.
  4. Government Road at Dryden Creek:  Finishing watermain upgrades that were part of 2017 project. Will require 90 metres of directional drilling.

Traffic impact: There will be some traffic impacts to nearby residents. Some residential water supplies will be temporarily disrupted as individual homes are connected to the new waterline. Door notices will be delivered to affected residents prior to any disruption.

Timeframe: Mid May into the fall
