2023 Watermain Lining Pitt Map


The City will be rehabilitating the watermain on Pitt Street, Cornwall Center Road to McKenzie Street. The existing watermain is a 500mm diameter concrete pressure pipe and was installed in 1974.

The rehabilitation process is called cured-in-place watermain lining. The process consists of inserting a flexible liner into the existing watermain. Once the liner is in place, steam is used to 'cure' or harden the liner. The process creates a new watermain inside of the existing one.

What to Expect During Construction

  1. Installation of a temporary watermain in the boulevard
  2. Installation of temporary fire hydrants.
  3. Excavation of access pits at intersections and strategic locations.
  4. Cleaning the existing watermain.
  5. Inspecting the watermain using closed circuit television (CCTV) devices.
  6. Installing the new liner.
  7. Cutting holes in the liner in locations where there are residential water services.
  8. Disconnecting of temporary fire hydrants.
  9. Removing the temporary watermain
  10. Restoration (New Topsoil & Sod and Repairing Driveways, Roadway and Curb).

Residents should expect to see access pits at the following locations:

  • Corner of Cornwall Center Rd and Pitt St (South East quadrant of the intersection)
  • Carriere Av and Pitt St (East quadrant of the intersection)
  • Mercier Av and Pitt St (North East quadrant of the intersection)
  • McKenzie Av and Pitt St (North East quadrant of the intersection) 

There will be times when the water supply is disrupted. This is because the water has to be off in order to connect/disconnect residents to the temporary water supply. The Contactor will send out notices in advance of the water being turned off.

Sometimes, unexpected events happen, like watermain breaks. When that happens, we cannot provide notice. We will work to restore your water service as quickly as possible.

There may be days where you don't see the Contractor on site between the different stages of work. This is a normal part of the process. The Contractor has many crews that do different types of work.

If you have any concerns, give us a call, or e-mail us using the contact information on this page.
