Macleod Trail SW Feedermain Valve Upgrade Project

About the Project

The City of Calgary Water Services will be replacing and removing a series of aging pipes and valves at five sites on Macleod Trail SW between 50 Ave. SW and 34 Ave. SW.

Construction begins July 18, 2016 and continues until early August. This is a result of Water Services' regular operational maintenance program to ensure system reliability.
