MacKenzie Lift Station & Sewer Upgrade

The RMWB will be installing a new sanitary sewer line from MacKenzie Boulevard to MacLennan Crescent, which will continue north to the east of the Gregoire neighborhood. This sewer is being installed to improve the capacity of the sewer lines in Gregoire and Mackenzie neighborhood preventing overflow issues and accommodating for a growing population. In addition, the water main in Mackay Crescent will be replaced as the existing main has been broken in many occasions due its age.

Work in 2016 and 2017 will focus on the installation of sanitary sewer lines paralleling the tree line to the east of the Gregoire neighborhood. To complete this installation, construction crews were required to cut down a few small groupings of trees which intersect with the new sewer alignment. Tree removal was carefully considered and was limited as much as possible. Vegetation restoration is planned, to speed the recovery of cleared areas.

A new sanitary lift station will be constructed to the west of intersection of Highway 63 and Mackenzie Boulevard. The existing lift station is in the proximity of Sawridge Hotel and will be demolished after the new station is functioning, as it has completed its life cycle. This lift station will connect to the new sanitary line, servicing the growing population in Gregoire, Mackenzie and other developed areas, such as Quarry Ridge.
