FRIESEN STREET STORM SEWER MEEP FUNDED PROJECT: COMPLETE
The objective of this project is to decommission the existing storm pipes located in private property and reinstall a new storm sewer down public roadways and lanes. The old storm sewer in residential yards will be decommissioned by filling the pipe with low-strength concrete. This will be a relatively unobtrusive process with minimal disturbance to residents. Construction activities will damage the street within the City right-of-way; therefore, asphalt repairs and replacement of the curb and sidewalk is included.
Completing this project will eliminate risks associated with the pipe running through private yards, allow better access to the sewer for maintenance, and improve the performance of the stormwater infrastructure.
Acknowledgement: The City would like to recognize the funding support for this project from the Province of Saskatchewan’s Municipal Economic Enhancement Program (MEEP).
