Oxford County

Clean Water and Wastewater Fund (CWWF) Projects

Beginning in November 2016, Oxford County Public Works began work on eight projects that received Provincial and Federal funding as part of the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund program. Each of these projects will benefit either the water or wastewater systems in the County. The combined budget for all projects is $5.1M, with the County receiving $3.95M from government funding.

Repair and rehabilitation of approximately 490 metres of 150mm Cast Iron Watermain on Potters Road from Simcoe Street to Lorraine Ave.

Projected Start Date: August 28, 2017

Projected End Date: November 30, 2017

The cast iron watermain of unknown age serves 38 customers. Approximately 490 metres of the watermain (150 mm Cast Iron) will be repaired or replaced as needed, including renewal of substandard service lines. Road reconstruction will also form part of the scope of this project. The timing of the work was accelerated as a result of the CWWF funding for the watermain.

Expansion of the Dewatered Biosolids Winter Storage Building.

Projected Start Date: January 1, 2017

Projected End Date: October 15, 2018

The Biosolids Centralized Storage Facility is a structural steel/concrete composite building with concrete foundation. The existing winter storage building will be expanded from 12 existing storage bays to 16 bays (4 additional winter storage bays). The existing 10,000 m2 building will see an expansion of 3,500 m2 in building floor area to accommodate winter storage for the anticipated future increase in dewatered biosolids quantities originating from the County wastewater treatment facilities. It has also been determined that fire suppression technologies must be added to the structure due to the response time from the local rural volunteer fire department.

Design and Replacement of 350 metres of the 400 mm Cast Iron Transmission main connecting the Bowerhill Reservoir to the Woodstock Distribution System.

Projected Start Date: January 1, 2017

Projected End Date: July 6, 2018

This project will replace nearly 350 m of the Bowerhill transmission main (400 mm Cast Iron) which has reached the end of its useful life. Replacement material type will be determined during detailed design. The transmission main dates back to the early 1900s. It connects the main treated water storage facility to the Woodstock Distribution System. This project will reduce the likelihood of failure of the main, improving reliability of service for close to 38,000 people. The open-cut option has reduced the total construction costs in comparison with relining or directional drilling.

Replacement of the Lagoon inlet works at the Sutton Street Sewage Pump Station (SPS) and Treatment Facility.

Projected Start Date: January 1, 2017

Projected End Date: June 30, 2018

Replacement of the existing concrete lagoon inlet works and 375mm inlet piping (HDPE, PVC) which is in need of upgrade, to be able to handle a peak flow of up to 150 L/s and include flow control devices to direct wastewater to either the north or south lagoon cell, including the provision for future wastewater sampling equipment and alum dosing.

Replacement of 200 mm Cast Iron watermain which connects the residents on 11th line to the Woodstock distribution system.

Projected Start Date: January 1, 2017

Projected End Date: May 18, 2018

Replacement of 200 mm Cast Iron watermain which connects the 21 customer on 11th line to the Woodstock distribution system. The watermain is the sole feed from the Woodstock Distribution System to the area. The watermain was constructed in 1953, traverses the Thames River and is in poor shape. Project involves directional drilling under the Thames River and conservation lands or structural relining of the section. The section is approximately 1200 metres in length. There are no federal lands involved in any part of this project.
