This week was the second full week of watermain installation. Watermain installation started at Plaza Drive (the west end of the project) and has now progressed to the Orchards Mall entrance across from Leeds Avenue. Approximately 1,000 feet of watermain has been installed to date, which is about 30% of the total 3,200 feet involved in the project.
There have been some challenges with underground utilities, including previously unknown water service lines discovered while digging and existing storm sewers found in need of repair. So far these discoveries have been resolved with relatively minor adjustments in the work and progress continues.
During the next week, watermain installation will continue to the east along the south side of Napier Ave. Watermain installation will be continuing for several more weeks before reaching Pipestone Road (the east end of the project).
