Underground Projects

The underground asset renewal program keeps our assets in good condition and reduces future maintenance costs.


The City has an underground asset renewal program that funds the replacement and rehabilitation of water distribution, sanitary sewer and stormwater systems.

Over the next 10 years, the City will increase capital infrastructure investments by 40 per cent, allocating $53.8 million for 78 capital infrastructure projects to help protect the health and resiliency of our community and the environment. The program is partially funded by a $15.3 million grant provided through Infrastructure Canada’s Disaster Mitigation and Adaptation Fund (DMAF). 

Accelerating the program now will help keep our underground assets in good condition to minimize future infrastructure costs, serve our growing community and protect critical underground infrastructure from earthquakes and climate change events like sea level rise and extreme storms.
