The City of Moose Jaw says phase 1 of the city’s Cast Iron Water Main Replacement Project is progressing well since its start last month.
Two crews will now be working on the project according to a release.
Four streets are currently actively involved in the project:
- 8th Avenue NW – Cast iron water main has been replaced. Asphalt work has begun and pavement will be completed soon.
- 9th Avenue NW (Edmonton to Francis Streets) – Cast iron water main has been replaced. Asphalt work will begin soon.
- 4th Avenue (Athabasca to Hochelaga Streets) – Cast iron water main has been replaced. Service connection replacement will continue this week.
- Ominica Street (6th to 8th Avenues) – Temporary water is scheduled to begin next week. Affected residents will be notified by the contractor via delivered notices to their properties.
Residents involved in this program receiving temporary water services will receive a credit on an upcoming water bill reflecting the time period they were on temporary service.
City Engineering reminds residents and children to stay a safe distance from equipment and to slow down when passing crews.
Pedestrians and drivers are asked to obey barricades and detour signs.
