The Carleton Place Public Works Department would like to inform residents of work that has begun to reline the watermain which spans the Mississippi River from Riverside Park to Flora Street. The Town has contracted this project to Aqua Rehab, which specializes in trenchless rehabilitation of underground infrastructure (in this case underwater). Crews will be located on either side of the river at times while relining activities are under way with no impact to the Mississippi River. We anticipate it will take approximately 3 weeks to complete this project. The Town has an alternate watermain crossing and Public Works staff do not foresee any significant impact on the water supply on the north side of the Mississippi River.
Should a member of the public have any concerns or questions, please contact the Public Works Office (613-257-2253).
