Division Avenue Water Main Rehabilitation Project Begins
Medicine Hat – Critical water system maintenance will begin this week to address aging infrastructure on Division Avenue South. Work in the area, mainly concentrated in intersections, is expected to last until the end of July 2020.
Construction will replace aging infrastructure and improve isolation boundaries so fewer customers are impacted by loss of water service, when necessary. The project will be split into phases, allowing crews to complete the work in segments while facilitating continued access to local businesses and residences during construction.
Residents may follow the project’s progress and view a detailed map on our website.
Detours will be in place and motorists are reminded to obey all traffic signs and detours related to ongoing construction.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, necessary City construction and infrastructure renewal and repair work will continue throughout the City. Residents are reminded to allow crews space to work safely, and to adhere to physical distancing standards by staying at least two metres away from City workers.
The City of Medicine Hat would like to thank residents for their continued patience and understanding as the necessary upgrades are completed to ensure safe and reliable infrastructure for years to come.
