Water Main Replacement Program
The replacement or rehabilitation 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, in the case of complete replacements, curb-to-curb restoration of the roadway once the work is complete.
Significant water main projects are scheduled in areas of Nutana East, Nutana West, Caswell Hill, Riversdale, 20th Street West, and Ruth Street this construction season. Details of each project will be added to this page in the coming weeks.
This year, the federal Gas Tax Fund program is contributing $14.9 million toward Saskatoon’s City-Wide Water, Stormwater and Wastewater Infrastructure Rehabilitation project. The federal Gas Tax Fund program in Saskatchewan is administered by the provincial government to help support municipalities.
