Sewer upgrades planned for North Dairy Road area

Saanich awards $2.1 million contract to Don Mann Excavating for project expected to start in May

Saanich has awarded the contract for a $2 million infrastructure project along the southern edge of the district.

Saanich council approved a $2.1 million tender to Don Mann Excavating for the installation of a new sanitary sewer on North Dairy Road, Kingsley Street and Lansdowne Road. Construction is expected to begin in May and be completed by October.

The main goal of the upgrade project is to reduce the sanitary sewer flows to the Wetherby Pump Station. The work will permit the pump station to remain at optimum functionality while managing the existing flow conditions and any new flows generated by developments in the catchment area. The sanitary sewer on North Dairy Road will be redirected diverting flows to the CRD Northeast Bowker Trunk System.

To take advantage of the deep excavation needed for the sanitary sewer diversion, aging storm drain and watermain infrastructure will be replaced on Kingsley Street at the same time. This preventative maintenance and upgrade helps avoid digging up the same area twice, reducing costs and disturbances to residents.

Residents can expect traffic delays and impacts to street parking. Electronic sign boards will help divert traffic to other major routes.

During construction, Saanich staff will provide updates to directly affected property owners for disruptions to garbage and recycling pick up; water, sewer and drain services; and residential driveway access.
