Watermain construction projects
Each year, the SCRD plans, designs and constructs new watermains in the Regional Water System. These watermain construction projects are to replace the old and undersized watermains and to loop one or more dead ends. The goal of the watermain construction projects are to improve fire flows, water quality and the overall system reliability.
What to Expect
The nature of watermain construction requires occasional traffic delays and interruption of water service. Traffic control plans will be in place to minimize disruption traffic delay and notices are handed out to all affected residents prior to all planned water shut-downs.
Chapman Creek Bridge – Davis Bay
COMPLETED Summer 2019. The 200 mm steel watermain crossing Chapman Creek below the Chapman Creek Bridge was replaced with a new 200 mm HDPE watermain.
COMPLETED Spring 2019. The 200 mm asbestos cement watermain on Henry Road between Russel Road and Reed Road was replaced with a 200 mm ductile iron watermain. This section of Henry Road, as well as Russel Road, are now connected to a higher pressure zone and resulting in improved service pressure and fire flows in the area.
Watermain construction projects planned for 2020 will be updated in February 2020.
