Road Construction Project, EN1184

2022 Sanitary Sewer Relining

The Sanitary Sewer Relining Program involves annual asset management activities focusing on the structural lining for sanitary sewer mains.

The Sanitary Sewer Relining Program is intended to extend the life of aging infrastructure. The sanitary sewers require upgrading to meet today’s standards, which will minimize long term maintenance costs. This will be achieved without any excavation of the roads

The wastewater collection system has traditionally been replaced or rehabilitated as part of full road reconstruction projects. While it is cost effective to do this while the roads are being constructed, it limits repairs to only sewers within road reconstruction projects. This results in many segments of the sewer collection system in need of repair being postponed, increasing the risk of failure and increasing infiltration into the sewers.

This program aims to complete sewer rehabilitation using trenchless technologies, which reduces costs by reducing road restoration requirements and will also reduce operational costs associated with repeated maintenance activities or emergency repairs


The schedule for 2022 is to be confirmed. It will be listed on this webpage once confirmed.

Affected Services

Water service, Hydro, Telephone, Cable TV, and Gas services should not be affected by the construction, barring any unforeseen circumstances. 

Sanitary Service

Some temporary interruptions in the sanitary service will occur when the pipe liner material is curing. Impacted residents will receive notices of the interruptions at least a day before they are scheduled to occur.

Curbside Collection

On the normal curbside collection day, impacted residents are asked to place all garbage, organics, recyclables and yard waste materials at the front of their property as usual. It is very important that you take your refuse and recyclable items to the front of your property by 7am, otherwise these items might not be picked up. The City’s waste pickup contractor is anticipated to have access through the construction site.  If the City’s waste pickup contractor does not have access, the construction contractor will remove these items and take them to outside of the construction zone, for pickup by the City’s waste pickup contractor. Your garbage cans, organics bin and recycling boxes will be returned to your property later that day. Please mark your address on all of your containers. 

Access to Properties

All reasonable efforts will be made to maintain vehicle access to driveways.  However, there may be some temporary interruptions to access during construction while construction vehicles maneuver.  Access will be restored as quickly as possible. The Contractor will provide prior notice of any imminent access restrictions to the businesses and residents.
Pedestrian access to all homes and businesses will be maintained during construction.


The contractor is required to conduct his work in a safe manner, including working in the middle of the roadway with through traffic.  We ask that you take extra caution during the construction period to ensure everyone’s safety.

Traffic Impacts

The contractor will use traffic control measures to permit through traffic through the construction site.  Typically this will include using traffic cones to steer drivers around the contractor’s vehicles, which will frequently be parked in the centre of the roadway where sanitary maintenance structures (manholes) are. Occasionally, flag persons will be required to assist with traffic control. Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.
