Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


Project Complete

Watermains in the following areas of the city are scheduled for cleaning and structural lining from August to early November, 2019:

  • Empire Avenue (Freshwater Road to Winchester Street)
  • Freshwater Road (Empire Avenue to Merrymeeting Road)
  • Linegar Avenue (Dillon Crescent to Warford Road)
  • Hennessey Place

Please note, this work is in addition to the ongoing watermain rehabilitation in the Rabbittown Area, which was completed in August, 2019.

Businesses and homes will receive water through a temporary, above-ground water piping system installed along the street. The contractor will notify residents directly if their properties are included in the project area and whether they will require access to the property to provide temporary water service. Two-way traffic and pedestrian access will be maintained where possible and delays can be expected. The contractor will make every effort to maintain driveway access to properties located within the work site. 

The City of St. John's began rehabilitation work on watermains in several areas of the city to reduce maintenance issues and improve service.

Cured-in-Place-Pipe (CIPP) lining of watermains is a trenchless pipe rehabilitation method which consists of cleaning and structural rehabilitation of the existing watermain via installation of a CIPP liner.

PROJECT FUNDING
The project will receive cost-shared funding through the Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component - National and Regional Projects (PTIC-NRP) of the New Building Canada Fund and the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund. Funding partners for this project are the Government of Canada, Province of Newfoundland and Labrador and the City of St. John's.
