City of Fernie – Water Distribution System

This project involved extensive upgrades to the existing water system of the City of Fernie. This project presented many challenges with some of the water main excavations going right through the heart of town, across the Elk river and a with very limited space between the Elk river and Highway # 3.

  • 6 km of water main ranging in size from 100mm to 500mm in diameter
  • New 4.5 million litre water reservoir
  • 2 pressure reducing stations
  • New curbs and sidewalks.
