City of Fort St John – 100th Ave Watermain

In May, 2010, LNB began construction on 1,000m of new 300mm Watermain running through the heart of downtown Fort St John. This project presented many challenges as most of the area was constructed during World War II and very little was kept in the way of records. The project involved extensive traffic management in order that traffic volumes could be maintained to service the many large businesses in the area. Unstable geotechnical features also contributed to the technical challenges involved with this project. Despite the challenges, the project was completed in July of the same year.

  • 1 km of 300mm Watermain at up to 4.5m depth
  • 11 Fire Hydrants
  • Extensive Traffic Management
