The overall objective of this project is to renew the aging combined sewer on McLeod Street, between Metcalfe Street and Elgin Street. The work will include the replacement of the combined sewer service laterals to the property line. The project will also involve some minor improvements to the water distribution system on McLeod Street. This section of the street contains two watermains: The 203mm watermain on the north side of the street will be abandoned and the water service laterals will be replaced and re-connected to the existing 406mm watermain on the south side of the Street.
The City does not expect any significant interruptions to sewer and water services during construction.
Once all the underground pipes have been replaced and the trenches have been reinstated, a new road surface will be laid and sections of sidewalk that have been impacted by the construction work will be renewed.
There is no plan to add any new street infrastructure, or to alter the road layout in any way. However, all new road, curb and sidewalk components will be brought up to current City of Ottawa standards.
