The project would provide over 9 km long 200 mm watermain from Ridgetown to Highgate, a 320 mᵌ ground water storage tank and a new booster pumping station at Highgate. This improvement addresses water quality and quantity issues for Highgate by providing a new water supply to the Highgate service area. The planned ground storage and booster pump station would also improve Highgate's fire storage and the flow capability. The new watermain would be fed by tapping into the existing Ridgetown water distribution system at the intersection of Erie Street N. and Algonquin Street.
The Ridgetown/Highgate Transmission Main/Reservoir Project has a total projected value of $4.6 million. The timeline for this project is July 2017 to January 2018.
