Update: January 26th, 2017
The Rosehill Reservoir Rehabilitation team will be completing additional underground utility work in the Rosehill Reservoir area, including in the Pumping Station. This work will take place on Friday, January 27th, 2017, between 7am and 7pm. A small work crew will on site to:
- Confirm the horizontal alignment of underground utilities;
- Measure watermain manholes, catch basins, chambers, and valve control boxes; and,
- Implement temporary field markings, if required to assist with the above tasks.
To complete this work, contractor vehicle access to the Pump House via Little Park will be required. There will be no noise or construction equipment associated with this work, and every effort will be made to reduce any inconvenience. The City appreciates your understanding and co-operation.
Rosehill Reservoir Rehabilitation Project Update
Since fall 2015 the project team has enjoyed extensive discussions with many interested stakeholders, including meetings with the Rosehill Garden volunteers, meetings with local residents, a meeting with the Summerhill Residents' Association Board, a presentation to the Summerhill Residents' Association membership, and discussions with other site users. In recent weeks the Rosehill Reservoir Rehabilitation project team has received many comments and questions from local residents. The City is grateful for the time and effort the community is dedicating to this project, and appreciates the feedback provided.
The project team had originally planned to host a Public Open House in November 2016. However, in response to comments received from the community we have decided to postpone this event in order to allow for additional work to be completed. We apologize for this change in schedule, but feel this will afford the project team more time to incorporate feedback.
We will provide updates when a Public Open House date has been set. This event is anticipated to take place in early 2017.
