Water Street Infrastructure Project


Phase III Scope of Work (handout from November 20 information session)

Since 2015, the City of St. John’s has been planning for a capital project on Water St. between Waldegrave and Prescott St. to replace/rehabilitate 100 year-old underground water and sewer infrastructure and undertake sewer separation.

The City has been working with a downtown stakeholder committee to discuss the scope of the work required, the schedule for the project and seek their input.

In December 2016 the City announced there were opportunities to rehabilitate the majority of the water and sewer infrastructure on Water Street using trenchless technologies as a way to mitigate impact on the downtown business community.

While much of the work can be completed using trenchless technology, traditional open excavation will also be required in places. The project will take five years to complete. This page will provide background information and updates on each phase, schedules, questions and answers and identify contacts for specific issues. Follow the page or sign up to contribute.

This page is not intended to replace other information such as Public Advisories or Public Notices (e- updates), for day to day updates such as traffic or water interruptions, etc. check the City's website.
