Within the past two years, the City of Chestermere has replaced underground copper water service pipes and connections that were eroding into the soil. This project, funded by the Government of Alberta’s Stimulus Plan grant program, was undertaken to ensure the longevity of our community’s underground infrastructure and improve the City’s resiliency to flooding events in future years.
Several locations were added to the original scope after being brought forward as a result of EPCOR completing leak tests that showed the public side of the copper pipes leaking.
Over the coming days and weeks, crews continue to address any deficiencies relating to the work performed. Every effort will be made to restore the sites to their original condition, including repaving driveways and sidewalks, or re-sodding grass. Some seasonal deficiencies may have to be addressed in the spring but these are not anticipated to be more than a fraction of the total number of services
