Midtown Water Supply
Have you been affected by a road or trail closure due to large pipes being laid? Wondering why this project is happening? To help you understand what the Midtown Water Supply Project is all about, here is a quick overview:
💧 Apr. 2020 - 22 million liters of water were lost from a major structural failure in the primary water supply main under Bowen Road.
💧 Jul. 2022 - site preparations and construction began building a new primary and a new secondary water supply main near Beban Park, Labieux Rd and Northfield Rd.
💧 Jan. 2023 - site preparations and construction began along the Nanaimo Parkway near Third St, and many several trails in the area will be closed near Vancouver Island University. When finished, the increased water supply will accommodate future growth, improve firefighting capabilities, reduce future failure risks and improve water quality for all consumers! Building a strong, resilient water supply network.
We thank you for your patience and understanding during the construction of this critical City project.
