Holly Pump Station & Forcemain

This work will implement the preferred servicing solution as recommended by City’s Wastewater Master Servicing Plan to provide sanitary servicing for planned growth within the northern Salem Area lands. The total project costs are currently estimated at $17 million.

The project will involve upgrades and expansion to the pump station located at 65 Logan Court and a new sanitary sewage forcemain along County Road 27, and along Mapleview Drive to Essa Road. A 300mm watermain will also be constructed on County Road 27 as part of this project.

Affected Services

Your water, sanitary sewer, hydro, telephone, cable TV, and gas services should not be affected by the construction, barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Barrie Transit: If the proposed construction affects any existing bus routes, public will be notified before construction begins.  Should you have any questions regarding public transit, please call Barrie Transit Customer Services at 705-739-4209.

Traffic Impacts

Temporary Road Closures / Lane Reductions: During construction, there will be temporary lane reductions to allow for the installation of the trunk watermain and the forcemain. To reduce traffic impacts, the extent of all active work areas (and any staging areas) will be minimized as much as possible.

Driveway Access: Vehicle access to properties within the construction limits will be provided during construction periods. Pedestrian access will be maintained during construction.


The purpose of this project is to implement the preferred servicing solution as recommended by the City’s Infrastructure Master Plans as the most efficient means to provide water and sanitary sewage servicing for planned growth within the northern Salem Secondary Plan lands and improve system reliability and resiliency. The City initiated the design phase in September 2016.
