Richmond Forcemain Project Update

As we begin Canada’s 150th birthday year, the City has many exciting events and projects planned for Canada’s Capital celebrations. Last year, during my mid-term Town Hall meetings, I detailed several of these exciting attractions including: Ignite 150, Agri 150, Red Bull Crashed Ice and the Juno Awards and Juno week. In addition to these special events, I thought I would take this opportunity to update the residents of Richmond and Munster on a not so flashy project. Progress on the Richmond Forcemain has been progressing steadily over the last few months. City staff, through my office, have been updating residents that are directly impacted by the on-going construction. To date, this project is on time and on budget. Minor work has been completed on the 300 mm bypass Forcemain. Last week, the 300 mm bypass line was commissioned to discharge sewage for a few hours into lagoon “C”. This happened on schedule without incident and all safety precautions were taken to ensure public health and safety. Starting this week, sewage will be pumped into Lagoon “C” using the 300 mm bypass line, as the primary Forcemain is repaired and replaced. This work is expected to take two to three weeks. Residents will continue to see work all along the construction site next to the Jock River along Royal York Street and on Eagleson Road. Trails and parking lots around the Richmond Lagoons have been closed for the duration of the construction project.
