Drainage Neighbourhood Renewal Program

The City of Edmonton's Drainage Neighbourhood Renewal Program is focused on the renewal and replacement of sanitary and storm sewers. This program works in combination with the Neighbourhood Renewal Program (focused on the renewal and rebuilding of roads, sidewalks, and streetlights) and the Great Neighbourhoods Capital Program (focused on improving the livability of Edmonton neighbourhoods) to renew the physical infrastructure of neighbourhoods and create vibrant, sustainable neighbourhoods.

Drainage renewal work is delivered through the following methods:

  • Relining - involves 'cured-in-place' pipe material resulting in minimal disruption to pavement
  • Open Cut - requires significant disruption to pavement

The construction timing and type of work is determined based on the following considerations:

  • 1 to 2 years ahead of planned Transportation neighbourhood reconstruction to avoid disturbance of new roads
  • When sewers are in poor condition, even though roadway reconstruction is in satisfactory condition, to avoid interruption of drainage service to the public
  • In coordination with franchised utilities where possible, such as ATCO Gas and EPCOR, to minimize inconvenience to the public
