2020 Water Main Replacement Program

Water main installation and replacement projects are proceeding as planned during the COVID-19 pandemic.  They have been prioritized in order to ensure continued water quality, improved water flow, and a decrease in the number of water main breaks. Other benefits to water main replacements include a reduction in the risk of contaminants and the restoration of roadways once the work is complete. This will result in smooth, "like new" driving surfaces!

*Please note all project scopes and start dates are subject to change.

Garvie Road Primary Water Main Installation Project

This project is now complete.

In preparation for a future underground reservoir near McOrmond Drive and Baltzan Boulevard, a primary water main has been installed under Garvie Road between the existing water mains under Central Avenue and Konihowski Road. The reservoir, expected to be constructed in 2023, will serve as the main water source for the Evergreen and Aspen Ridge neighbourhoods. 

The City continues to re-evaluate these and all other planned projects as we continue to adhere to the recommendations from Public Health and the Government of Canada and Saskatchewan to limit the spread of COVID-19. Health and safety of our employees, contractors, businesses and the general public is a priority and all necessary precautions will be followed.  ​
