Sanitary Sewer and Water Main Replacement, Highway 19 in Strathlorne and Inverness
Beginning the week of September 7th, pre-construction and construction work is expected no Highway 19 in Strathlorne and Inverness. Please respect all posted signage.
Hours of work will be Monday to Friday, dawn to dusk.
The Municipality and its contractor apologize for any inconvenience this necessary work causes.
The 24-hour emergency line is: 902-258-5048.
Why is this work necessary?
This critical water distribution and sanitary collection infrastructure in the construction area are significantly undersized to accommodate projected future flows. Additionally, the Nova Scotia Department of Public Works plans to resurface Highway Route 19 from Church Road in Strathlorne to the intersection with Broad Cove Banks Road in 2022.
Prior to resurfacing, the Municipality of the County of Inverness and the contractor Zutphen Contractors will be replacing the water and sanitary sewer mains and the Municipally owned portion of the water and sewer services from the bottom of Broad Cove Banks Road to the Strathlorne Tree Nursery. As the owner and operator of the sanitary sewer and water main, the Municipality is required to repair and replace critical infrastructure to enable operational compliance with federal and provincial regulations and ensure the capacity for current and projected residential and commercial growth is accommodated.
