Mission watermain upgrade

In response to the effects of scouring on the Elbow River during the 2013 flood event, the existing water main crossing the river adjacent to 25 Ave SW (Scollen Bridge) will be abandoned as it does not currently comply with provincial requirements. In addition to this work, a portion of the existing water main under 26 Ave SW will be upsized and a new water main is required under 2 St SW between 26 Ave SW and 25 Ave SW. This work will be completed in a phased approach.

The first phase of upsizing the watermain under 26 Ave SW was completed at the end of September 2017 while the remaining phases of this project will commence in Summer 2018. Ahead of this work, the City will communicate to residents and commuters anticipated construction impacts, schedule of site activity and any water service impacts.

This upgrading process will position the City to preserve the safety and security of the water supply for years to come.
