LETHBRIDGE - An important sewer system upgrade is being advanced from 2015 to 2013.
City Council decided to bump up the project along 28th Street North and 26th
Avenue, since that section of road is set to be twinned in 2014. The accelerated
sewer project will prevent the need for future road reconstruction once the road
is twinned. It will save about $1.5 to $2.4-million.
The upgrade will provide additional sanitary sewer capacity needed for future development in southeast Lethbridge. Recent work on a servicing strategy determined that 26th Avenue and 28th Street North is the most cost-effective and preferred alignment because it makes optimal use of existing sewer lines.
The sewer upgrade will be funded from the city's Offsite Levy account, which
is funded by private developers to cover growth related infrastructure
