Watermain renewal project progressing

The major watermain renewal project which began in the spring continues to progress with work now shifting location.  

The 6 Avenue South portion of the project wrapped up over the weekend with work now moving to the 9th Avenue North portion. The project schedule has been revised to be completed at the end of August.

Ninth Avenue North will be fully closed at the worksite location near 20 Street North for some phases of the project. 

The City of Lethbridge has been replacing cast iron water mains for over forty years. Cast iron pipes, as of 2021, represent 10 per cent of the total water mains in the City of Lethbridge and nearly 100 per cent of the water main breaks. 

Motorists are reminded to expect delays in the area, to drive with caution, and to follow all posted signage.
