Residents are asked to respect the barricades in the construction area and please do not drive on the personal property of residents in the area to go around the barricades.
As you may be aware, Springside Town Council has signed a contract with Kelsey Pipelines, through Bullee Consulting, to construct a new sewage pumping station and force main in the Town of Springside. The existing lift station is starting to fail, is not reliable and needs to be upgraded. The total cost of the project will be $2,150,000, paid for in a three-way partnership between the town and the federal and provincial governments through the Provincial Territorial Infrastructure Component (PTIC) Grant. Construction is scheduled to begin mid-August, 2019 and to be completed by the end of February, 2020.
The new lift station will be located on the corner of Sharman Street and Collins Avenue, which is adjacent to the existing one. With any new construction we can expect some disruptions, such as extra traffic in the area - particularly with large equipment, traffic detours, road closures and possibly minimal disruptions in water services.
At a special meeting held in council chambers on July 22, 2019, representatives from Kelsey Pipelines explained that they will attempt to keep the disruptions to a minimum. Throughout the process, they will be providing updates to the Town Office and we will pass that information on through our Facebook page and via the Town of Springside website.
Springside Town Council wishes to apologize to any residents affected by these disruptions. However, we are excited for this much-needed upgrade to the Town of Springside’s infrastructure as it ensures that our community will remain viable long into the future.
Please check back to see information and updates throughout the construction process.
