Cast Iron Water Main Replacement Project Progresses
MOOSE JAW - Moose Jaw – Phase 1 of the City’s Cast Iron Water Main Replacement Project is progressing well since its start last month. The program will be accelerating over the remainder of the construction season with the contractor now having two crews working on the project.
Four streets are currently actively involved in the project:
8th Avenue NW – Cast iron water main has been replaced. Asphalt work has begun and pavement will be completed soon.
9th Avenue NW (Edmonton to Francis Streets) – Cast iron water main has been replaced. Asphalt work will begin soon.
4th Avenue (Athabasca to Hochelaga Streets) – Cast iron water main has been replaced. Service connection replacement will continue this week.
Ominica Street (6th to 8th Avenues) – Temporary water is scheduled to begin next week. Affected residents will be notified by the contractor via delivered notices to their properties.
Residents involved in this program receiving temporary water services will receive a credit on an upcoming water bill reflecting the time period they were on temporary service.
Contractor site visits with Phase 1 property owners who have submitted their agreements are being scheduled throughout the summer. These contractor site visits will confirm current service connections and provide estimates for work chosen.

As with all projects, safety comes first. City Engineering reminds residents and children to stay a safe distance from equipment and to slow down when passing crews. Pedestrians and drivers are asked to obey barricades and detour signs to ensure safety of workers in the area.
