Sept 2021 - UPDATE

    The majority of the works required for the Trepanier Interconnect have been successfully installed. The contractor recently completed pressure testing of the mainline and is now moving into the flushing, disinfection and bacteriological testing phase. Once this portion of the project is completed, the final connections can be made on Trepanier Bench Rd; allowing for the final lift of pavement to be installed. The paving is anticipated to be completed by late October / early November. After the final connection is completed, commissioning will ensue; the final step to providing the Trepanier area with water sourced from the new Water Treatment Plant.

In an effort to extend treated water to all the communityís water users, an interconnect between the Peachland Creek water system and Trepanier Creek water system is required.
