Ferry Road and Riverbend Sewer Separation Project
The City of Winnipeg is changing the existing combined sewer system in order to alleviate basement flooding and reduce the number of combined sewer overflows in the St James area.
The Ferry Road and Riverbend Combined Sewer Relief Works Conceptual Design Report and Study was completed in 2009. The study determined that the current level of service (LOS) for the district's combined sewer capacity is lower than a five year return period design storm.
Construction of new land drainage sewers (LDS) in the Ferry Road and Riverbend combined sewer district will convey wet weather into a new land drainage system, improving the LOS. The proposed sewer separation works will be carried out over a number of years within the St. James area requiring 22 contracts due to the large scale of the work. The number of total contracts may vary depending on the scope of work.
Construction of combined sewer overflow and basement flood relief works in the Ferry Road and Riverbend combined sewer district commenced in August 2013 with Contract 1. To date, 11 contracts have been completed with a total committed investment of $22.1 Million. 11 more construction contracts will commence upon the completion of the detailed design of the main sewer trunk to complete the Ferry Road and Riverbend sewer separation works. Residents who are directly impacted by current combined sewer separation projects should receive a Water and Waste Notice.
