Storm Sewer Rehabilitation Program

The town's annual storm sewer rehabilitation program is aimed at rehabilitating or replacing the existing storm sewer system to ensure the network is in a state of good repair.

2018 Program

The 2018 program identified 1,160 meters of storm sewer pipes that are in need of attention, and will run from the end of March through to the end of May, 2018.

The storm sewer pipes are located on the following streets.

  • Elgin Crescent
  • Ingledene Drive

West locations:

  • Ashbury Road
  • Wildwood Drive

Phases of the Project

For each pipe there is approximately 5 days of work and is typically done in four stages.

Phases include:

  • Video Inspections and cleaning of each pipe
  • Pipe measurements and manufacturing of the new liner. It takes approximately 3 to 5 weeks for the liner to be designed and delivered
  • Installing and curing of the new liner
  • Video inspections of the final product

Background and candidate selection process

Based on previous video inspections, existing storm sewer pipes have been identified in need of immediate rehabilitation due to structural deficiencies. this rehabilitation work can be completed by spot repairs, full pipe replacement or trenchless relining of the pipe. The 2018 program will utilize trenchless technology of relining the existing pipe.

The 2018 program has been awarded to D.M. Robichaud Associates, from Oshawa, Ontario. The town has also retained Robinson Consultants to provide inspections and quality assurance services for this project.

Funding for this program has been approved through the Clean Water and Wastewater Program (CWWF) in partnership with the Federal Government, The Province of Ontario and the Town of Oakville.

About 48 hours before the installation work begins notices will be delivered to homes in the area as a reminder that the town and it's contractors will be starting on your road.
