London is now in Step 3 of the Provincial Roadmap to Reopen. In alignment with Step 3, the City of London has expanded additional in-person City services in accordance with the new regulations.
The Arva to Huron water transmission main is a critical and important asset to the City as it is the primary route to provide water to London. This study includes an assessment of both short and long-term options.
Short-term considerations include the potential need to widen the existing transmission main easement to continue ongoing monitoring of the condition of the transmission main and for potential maintenance, repair or replacement of the existing transmission main.
Long-term considerations include evaluating alternative options for routing the transmission main between the Arva Pumping Station and Huron Street in total or for specific sections. The routing options to be investigated will address long-term transmission capacity needs and provide for redundancy.
