Why was the project named Phase 4? What were phases 1 through 3?
The previous projects were larger individual or small groups of streets and named after their area. This project is a collection of many nearby smaller streets as a single project. We decided to call it Phase 4 as it is the 4th area to be serviced in the Hart Highlands.
- Phase 1 was Wallace Crescent, Wallace Place, Berwick Drive, Dundee Drive, and a portion of Langley Crescent.
- Phase 2 was Ridgeview Drive.
- Phase 3 is Killarney, Sussex, Sussex Place and Wildwood (KSW)

When will the project be completed?
The project is in the early stages and the schedule may still change. If the LAS is approved and the project proceeds, the current plan is to start construction in 2018 and complete construction in the summer/fall of 2020.
Do property owners have any input on where the connection is located? What are the regulations for service location?
Yes. As part of the design process an engineering consultant will work with property owners individually and evaluate their specific connection scenario and provide recommendations on the best connection method. The City will include this information and provide the sewer connection in a complementary location. This process allows property owners to prioritize saving driveways, landscaping or trees specific to their property.
How deep are the services going to be?
The minimum depth of service connections at property line is 2.0m (6.5ft). Connections may be deeper to accommodate topography and enable gravity drainage from basements where possible.
Why is the watermain being upgraded?
If the sanitary sewer LAS project proceeds, the City will also replace old watermains and services with larger watermains, new services connection and new fire hydrants to provide improved water flow for firefighting. Replacing the watermains at the same time as the sanitary sewer LAS helps reduce the number of major infrastructure projects and service interruptions in the area. This strategy allows the costs of excavation and road building to be shared by the City and property owners.
