Like all infrastructure, water pipes eventually need to be replaced. As a watermain nears the end of its life span the frequency of breaks in the pipe increases. Watermains that have a high number of breaks over a five-year period are added to the renewal list. Each year specific pipelines are selected for renewal from this list. We also coordinate water and sewer renewals with street overlay projects as much as possible to avoid digging up newly paved streets.
