Residents and business owners in Collingwood and the surrounding area are advised that the Town of Collingwood is proceeding with the CIPP lining of the Highway 26 watermain from Silver Creek Drive to Princeton Shores Boulevard. The project will include the following works:
- Relining of approximately 1,100 metres watermain
- Installation of a hydrant
- Valve replacement
The Town has tendered and awarded the Contract to Fer-Pal Construction Ltd. who are scheduled to mobilize and commence work on October 16, 2023. Construction is expected to be substantially performed in early December 2023.
Please note this schedule is subject to change, based on several factors including inclement weather, the addition of extra construction crews, unforeseen conditions, etc. Tatham Engineering and the Town of Collingwood will endeavor to keep residents aware of major schedule changes, should they arise.
Throughout the project, various water service interruptions will take place for those living adjacent to the construction limits. Notices will be delivered providing 48-hour notice prior to shutdown to those impacted. Shutdowns will generally take place during the day and all service will be reinstated each evening.
Construction involves the use of heavy equipment and the unavoidable creation of obstacles (excavations, etc.). The contractor is required to conduct the work in a safe manner, including having adequate traffic control and providing fencing for deep excavations, if required. We ask that you take extra caution during the construction period to ensure everyone’s safety.
Fer-Pal Construction Ltd. has entered into a contract with the Town of Collingwood to complete the work and Tatham Engineering will be administering the contract. If you have any questions regarding the construction, please contact the Project Managers between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday.
