Airport Boundary Metering Project

About the project

The City of Calgary will be installing water meters at service connection points to monitor water supply to airport lands. There are 11 locations identified where meters will be installed.

The water meters being installed are larger than a residential meter but work the same way. The new meters will monitor flows through the water distribution pipes and record the information.

  • Work will be completed at 11 locations around the boundary of the YYC Calgary International Airport.
  • Installation of the new meters involves shutting down the existing water main, removing small sections of pipe, installing an underground concrete vault, and installing new piping to reconnect to the existing system. The meter will be located inside the vault. A control panel will be installed on the surface to provide power and monitor the meter readings.
  • Construction fencing will be in place for the duration of this project.
  • Multiple sites will be under construction at one time.

Construction Impacts

  • Road detours and lane closures will be required for these installations.
  • Some businesses may experience water service interruptions. We will contact those who are impacted by water service interruptions directly to provide more details.
  • Work will be performed from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m., six days a week. Work may occur on holidays and Sundays in order to meet the project schedule.
  • Equipment may be stored adjacent to each site.
  • The temporary staging areas and access routes will be restored to original condition or better.

Project schedule

Work is scheduled to begin in late March and continue for three months.
