 Carter Street
 A portion of the existing watermain servicing Carter Street was located on the rail line property behind the homes, and had reached the end of it’s lifespan. The City relocated 135m of watermain to the Carter Street Right of Way and relocated the water services of 9 residents to the front of their homes. As a result of relocating the water services, each home required additional plumbing to bring the water meters to the front of the homes.

 

This project was made possible by the Clean Water and Wastewater Grant, in sponsorship with the provincial and federal government.
