Replacing the sewers and water lines under McLeod St will take place in 2023. Starting January 2022, residents may see some geotechnical investigations, involving bore hole drilling, etc.
The overall objective of this project is to renew the aging combined sewer on McLeod Street, between Metcalfe Street and Elgin Street. The work will include the replacement of the combined sewer service laterals to the property line. The project will also involve some minor improvements to the water distribution system on McLeod Street. This section of the street contains two watermains: The 203mm watermain on the north side of the street will be abandoned and the water service laterals will be replaced and re-connected to the existing 406mm watermain on the south side of the Street.
