What we do
The primary responsibilities of the Water and Sewer Division fall in the areas of distribution of potable water, and collection of wastewater. The staff undertake scheduled programs such as water main replacement, hydrant repair & replacement, valve repair & replacement, sanitary sewer main replacement, sanitary sewer video inspections, annual water main flushing, meter changes and programmed flushing of sanitary sewer lines. They are also called upon to perform emergency repairs to the distribution and collection system when it may be required. When time permits, staff conduct repair and replacement of residential water and sewer services.
Geographical Information Systems have recently been developed for this division’s systems to accurately determine infrastructure condition, replacement lifecycles, present levels of service and replacement costs of water distribution and waste water collection networks. Current replacement values for water distribution and wastewater collection network exceed $100 M. Future efforts will continue to focus on reducing infrastructure lifecycles and on incorporating evolving technologies to improve infrastructure maintenance.
