MOOSE JAW – The City of Moose Jaw is pleased to announce that the East Feeder Main Replacement project is substantially complete.

The $12.5 million project, which began in 2015, included the replacement of 4.2 kilometres of larger-diameter feeder main pipe that serves Moose Jaw residents in the central, east and south sections of the city.

The final phase of the project began in late summer, 2020, and the feeder main is now connected to the City’s distribution network and fully commissioned. Additionally, all traffic restrictions on Main St. North have been removed.

Remediation of land that was disrupted to allow the pipe replacement will occur as soon as conditions allow this spring.

The City thanks all businesses, property owners and residents who were affected by this project and appreciates the patience and cooperation that allowed the successful completion of this integral infrastructure project.   Special thanks to the Lynbrook and Hillcrest Golf Clubs, as accommodation of this project caused some disruption to their respective courses.

Analysis of the City’s water distribution system is ongoing and we continue to address our water infrastructure through the Water Main Replacement Program (2021 locations to be announced by spring) and the the new High Service Reservoir pumphouse (construction is underway).
