Water Main Replacement Program

The replacement of Saskatoon's oldest water mains are prioritized every year to ensure continued water quality, better water flow, and decrease the number of water main breaks. Other benefits include a reduction in the risk of contaminants and curb-to-curb restoration of the roadway once the work is complete. 

Water mains in good condition just need maintenance from time to time to extend the lifespan. This is a trenchless method where the water main is lined on the inside with plastic tubing.
