Water Main Replacement
Our priority is to provide residents with safe, clean drinking water. Replacing old water mains with new ones, with an 80-year life expectancy, will ensure residents have access to a higher standard of potable water now, and for generations to come.
We will start work to replace the aging and undersized water main from 2126 Curteis Road to 10840 Inwood Road on September 7, 2021. We expect this work to continue until December 2021.
In 2016, Kerr Wood Leidal Consulting Engineers completed the Water System Master Plan. This long-term asset management plan for the District’s water system recommends key upgrades to address capacity and reliability for fire protection and residential and commercial use.
The first phase of the project began in 2017 at the intersection of West Saanich and Lands End Road and proceeded westerly to the intersection of Lands End Road and Kitwanga Place (705m).
The second phase of the project began in 2018 and saw the replacement of the water mains from Lands End Road and Kitwanga Place to 478 Lands End Road (700m).
The District completed the replacement of the aging water main on Lands End Road and Chalet Road on November 12, 2020.
