Work to add a new watermain and pressure reducing stations will begin on June 8 and continue until the end of November.

Project information

The City of Kelowna Water Utility sources water from Okanagan Lake and provides water to just over half of the Kelowna population. A new water main is being built in the Mission/North Crawford area to provide a critical link between the City's north and south water systems and ensure service and water quality keeps up with growing demands.

Project work includes a new watermain, a pressure reducing station building at the end of east end of Hubbard Road and a pressure reducing station kiosk at Raymer Road within Woodhaven Regional Park. Work within Woodhaven Park is limited to the area near Bellevue creek where a watermain already exists within the Park. The watermain is planned to be installed along the edge of road along most of the route.</span>

Construction impacts

  • Roads in the construction zone will be limited to local traffic only during active construction, with the exception of Gordon Drive and Dehart Road. Residents will be informed of impending closures before they happen
  • On-street parking will be unavailable during active construction
  • Pedestrian access will be maintained
  • Trail access to Mission Ridge Park will be closed at Hubbard Road. Alternative access can be found at Bullock Road.

Estimated Cost: $4 million

Block meetings

A series of block meetings will be held with property owners adjacent to the construction limits to learn more about the schedule and the latest project updates. Emil Anderson Construction has appointed a community liaison officer to support neighbourhood communications during construction.

Below is a map of the project route. The project is planned to be completed in 3 sequential segments in the direction shown on the attached map. Some overlap between segments will occur.
