Drake’s Path Wastewater Servicing Extension

Project Background Information

Drake’s Path was initially serviced with Town water in 1992 and recently has been identified for the consideration for wastewater servicing. In early November 2018, the project was moved forward in the Town’s Capital Plan.

The project will include wastewater servicing and service laterals to the property line of each property. The project will also ensure restoration to the existing conditions in the areas disturbeded by the installation of the necessary infrastructure. Full road reconstruction is not being considered as part of this project. There will also be minor drainage improvements and installation of a gravel turnaround.

A notice was sent to each of the residents of Drake’s Path outlining the project scope and informing them that the project would be paid for by the benefiting property owners. Preliminary estimated costs for each property owner's share were also included. The affected residents were notified that Council would be considering the project through the 2019 budget process, and they were encouraged to provide feedback to Council during the budget deliberations.

The project was formally approved by Council through the 2019 budget process but was delayed due to transportation concerns in the area. In November 2020 the Town awarded the contract for the completion of the detailed engineering design and construction contract administration to WT Infrastructure Solutions Inc. It is anticipated that the detailed design will be completed in 2021, with construction following in the summer of 2022.

As part of the preliminary design process, a Public Information Centre was held on Thursday, April 22nd, 2021 to allow residents to take a more active role in the design process and the cost-sharing mechanism for the project. 
A recording of the Public Information Centre can be viewed here.

On Tuesday, June 15th, 2021, the staff follow-up report to the April Public Information Centre will be presented to the Committee of the Whole. The Staff Report can be found here
