Fayette and Lamarque Road Water Main Replacement May - October 2020
The Alberni Clayquot Regional District (ACRD) will be replacing approximately 1,645 lineal meters of 150 mm dia. PVC watermain on Fayette and Lamarque Roads, including 47 water services, 11 hydrants, appurtenances and surface restoration. These watermains were installed in the early 1960s and are approaching the end of their life expectancy. This project will replace the 4-inch AC mains with 6-inch PVC main and increase hydrant locations, reducing emergency repairs/loss of water and improving fire flows. The project is expected to get underway on May 19th, 2020 and anticipated to be completed by the end of October, 2020 with a small amount of landscaping or asphalt patching completed in the spring of 2021. If you have questions or concerns regarding the project, please feel free to contact the ACRD: Manager of Operations, Jenny Brunn 250-720-2717
