Twinning Project Begins
Grizzly Excavating Ltd. was awarded (October 15th) the last phase of the Twinning project, north of Town in water system #1. This project will complete the last phase of brining a dedicated domestic water line for the remaining 46 customers who currently receive Boil Water Notices throughout the spring/summer/fall. Grizzly will be trying to complete the water line installations along Highway 97 first before the weather turns for the worse. Following the Highway installations, they will move to work on the following roads; Ridgeview, Park Rill, Pinehill and Sportsmen's Bowl.
The work will include; water main line installations, new domestic water service tie-ins, water meter boxes (pits) installations, new hydrants, asphalt and landscaping restorations, etc... Coinciding with this Twinning project will be the Buchanan well drilling and directional pipe drilling under the Okanagan River which both will help tie domestic water from the east side of the river to the west and the new Buchanan well will help supply this system with domestic treated drinking water. The Twinning project is expected to last into April 2014.
