About This Project

The watermain replacement program started in 2015, and it includes, but is not limited to, the replacement of approximately 1,000 metres of pipe ranging from 100 mm to 400 mm in size. The program also included residential watermain replacement to major collector roads in the downtown core. North Star was the prime contractor of this project and was responsible for underground, paving and concrete services. North Star was also responsible for removing and replacing services for all effected houses, various gate vales, and hydrants. The North Star crews overcame several challenges, including the handling of pre-existing watermain, which was mostly ductile pipe.
