Coordination of drainage renewal with reconstruction of above-ground infrastructure is essential to minimize disruption in neighbourhoods. This program includes mainline sewer replacement with open-cut or relining methods, manhole repairs and renewal of service connections in neighbourhoods built before 1989.
Drainage Services spent about $28 million rehabilitating 53 km of sewers in developed neighbourhoods in 2010. The following is a list of neighbourhoods where sewer renewal works have been carried out recently:
|Alberta Avenue||Capilano||King Edward Park
||West Jasper Place|
|Belgravia||Empire Park||North Glenora
This program plans renewal in 20 neighbourhoods over the next three years at a cost of about $147 million from the drainage utility
