Aqueduct repairs this summer

During July and August 2015, our water contractor Simo will be on several streets to perform routine operations. This includes opening small manholes to manipulate the valve underground. Some teams will do it by hand while others would use a machine in the front of the vehicle. This is an important part of the maintenance of our aqueduct network. It is done every year.

In addition, we will be improving the resistance of water main pipes to corosion with a procedure called cathodic protection. A subcontractor will saw 18-inch holes 7 metres apart on the streets listed below. There will be a pneumatic excavation, which involves a big truck that digs with a vacuum hose. An anode will be placed in the hole.
