About the project

The Lower Sarcee Feedermain project is the construction of a new 6 km feedmain that will help provide safe, clean and reliable drinking water to new and existing communities in Southwest Calgary. 

A feedermain is a large-diameter pipe that conveys water from one reservoir or pumping station to another. The size of pipe used in this project is 1050mm diameter.

The route will run along James McKevitt Road SW from 162 Avenue SW to the Southwest Calgary Ring Road corridor, east along the corridor to Sheriff King Street SW and then south along Sheriff King Street SW to 210 Avenue SW.
