Phase Four of the water main replacement project is scheduled to be completed by fall 2019, and the City of Moose Jaw has released the location undergoing work this summer.
This phase will see 1,600m of water main pipes replaced, and an additional 600m repaired.
Areas chosen for complete replacement include the intersection of Main St. and Athabasca St E, and a section of 1st Ave NE from Saskatchewan Street all the way down to Caribou St. E.
Smaller areas on Fairford St. E, Edmonton St, and Stadacona St W will also be part of the replacement work. All of these sections of water mains have been chosen due to their importance, and because of water main breaks in recent years.
Crews will also be doing some water main relining — a type of repair that involves lining the existing pipe with synthetic material — on a stretch of Elizabeth St and the alley east of Main Street, from Manitoba St. E to Fairford St. E.
The water main replacement program is now in its fifth year of a twenty-year plan, and is dedicated to replacing the pipes that are aging and causing a number of problems.
Residents in affected areas will receive notification about the work in the next few weeks, and the City is hosting two information sessions for affected property owners in the Council Chambers at City Hall on May 23, at 6:30pm, and June 6, at 6:30pm.
