Watermain Rehabilitation Work to Begin Next Week

Watermain rehabilitation work on road side

Next week the City of St. John's will begin rehabilitation work on watermains in several areas of the city in order to reduce maintenance issues and improve service. Work will continue throughout the 2017 construction season starting in Shea Heights, followed by Wedgewood Park and then proceed to the Rabbittown area.

Residents in all the affected areas will be notified by mail before work in their neighbourhood begins.

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.

Two-way traffic and pedestrian access will be maintained where possible, delays are to be expected. Every effort will be made by the contractor to maintain driveway access to properties located within the work site.

The Access St. John’s Call Centre is available to residents 24 hours a day, seven days a week, by calling 311 or 709-754-CITY (2489) or online.
