Full Project Completion Date: Fall 2019

News and Updates
Update: Wednesday, June 14th, 2017
Please be advised that construction crews will be working on the St. Clair Reservoir Rehabilitation on Saturday, June 17th, Saturday, June 24th, and Saturday, July 8th. Work on Saturdays will take place from 9am to 5pm. This extension of work beyond regular construction hours (Monday to Friday, 7am to 7pm) is necessary due to recent inclement weather, which has delayed progress. Working on these dates will allow the crews to recuperate some time lost to rain delays.
This work will involve:
- Exterior cleaning and waterproofing of the concrete roof (weather dependent)
- Interior rehabilitation work of the west reservoir basin, which will not cause significant noise, disruption or dust.
Update: Construction Phase 2, April 18th, 2017
