The NCC is in the process of partially replacing the park’s water systems. Work should be completed by the end of fall 2020. Until then, partial park closures are to be expected, to ensure public safety and security.
About the project
The water mains in Commissioners Park have reached the end of their life cycle, and are in need of significant repairs. The NCC is partially replacing the water systems, including the potable water line and the water management control systems.
The work consists of the following:
- Installing a new potable water line for two of the five drinking fountains
- Replacing the selected drinking fountains for seasonal use
- Removing the existing asphalt pad for the three remaining fountains, and reinstating topsoil and sod
- Capping the existing water line as per the NCC process
- Restoring the site
The work will ensure a safe water supply for park visitors.
