This project is to complete a detailed design to upgrade the Zone 3N Reservoir in order service the Wedderburn, North D'Arcy and future north lands; to accept water and control water from a future regional potable water pipeline and replace aging electrical pumps and controls.  The project scope also includes expansion of the existing pump house building; installation of Zone 4N pumps; replacement of Zone 3N pumps and installation of transfer pumps to allow for transfer to Zone 2 reservoir.

This project is required to allow for development of Wedderburn and D'Arcy north of Bannister Gate, by providing water to a new pressure zone. It will also allow water to be received from a regional pipeline and replace assets that are due for life cycle replacement. Updated controls and pumps will also result in energy savings.

Patterson Road Surface and Deep Utility Replacement
Project Details

LBCO Contracting Ltd., on the behalf of the Town of Okotoks, is expected to commence road surface and deep utility replacement (water and sewer) work June 11.  The work is expected to be completed by the end of July, weather permitting.

This project includes replacing aging watermain, sanitary sewer, and pavement on Patterson Road (green outline) and the replacement of individual lot sanitary and water service connections to the property line.  The sanitary sewer main will be lowered by up to 1m to help achieve better grading to the property line.  Road structure will be redone with new pavement added from curb to curb. The sanitary sewer near the Clark Avenue stairs (yellow outline) will be replaced and will require the closure of the stairs (pedestrian detour signage will be put in place).  Suggested detours are Wylie Park, Crescent Road and Veterans Way.

Given the scope of the work, please expect road closures; construction signage will be in place.   Parking in front of homes on Patterson Road will likely not be possible during the construction period; there will be pedestrian access to homes only.  Alternative parking will need to be found on adjacent streets (e.g. Clark, Mountain, etc.).  A long-term parking option for extra vehicles and/or recreational vehicles can be made available in the NW corner of the Okotoks Recreation Centre parking lot. 

Regarding waste collection, bins will be set up at either end of Patterson Road for residents to place their garbage, organics and recycling.   LBCO is expected to follow up with further updates.

The Town thanks you for your patience and cooperation during this project. For more information and project updates please check this page or contact Mitchell Kowalski, Engineering Technologist, at  403-938-8053.
