Georgia St water main upgrades

We’re upgrading critical water, sewer, and street infrastructure along sections of West Georgia St from Howe St to Thurlow St.

The existing water main, installed in 1924, has reached the end of its service life and needs to be replaced following a series of recent leaks. The new water main will last approximately 100 years.

What's happening

Work completed in April 2020

Starting in January 2020, we began replacing the existing water main that was almost more than 100 years old. Work began on Georgia St at Howe St and proceeded west.

The work also included repairing the road damaged as a result of the water main construction and sidewalk restoration where required.
