Work Underway: Trenchless Sewer Line Rehab

Please be advised that beginning Wednesday, August 16, 2018, there will be disruptions to traffic and sewer services in various locations in Fort Nelson, as work is conducted on the 2018 Trenchless Sewer Rehabilitation Program.


There will be alternating single-lane traffic between August 16th - August 18th on Liard Street from 51 Street to 54 Avenue West. On August 17th the intersection of Liard Street and 52 Street will be closed, local traffic only may enter from Sunset Drive.


The subcontractor is Mar-Tech Underground Services Ltd. and they will be completing repairs to waste water (sanitary sewer) lines in Fort Nelson, using an innovative repair technique called Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) relining that restores the lines. The CIPP repairs minimizes the amount of excavation necessary, but there will be interruptions to sewer service between:


Wednesday, August 15th and Friday, August 31st.


Those affected have already been notified of the exact times when they will be unable to use their sewer.


Due to this relining procedure we ask for your cooperation during these specified times. DO NOT RUN ANY WATER DOWN YOUR DRAINS - including toilets, sinks, dishwashers, laundry, showers or any other drains in your home.


****Use of drains may cause a backup of water into your home****


PLEASE NOTE that from time to time there may be a “fiberglass-like” odor that may come in to your home from a dry floor drain. If this happens, pour 2 or 3 litres of water down the floor drain to fill the drain trap and prevent the odor from continuing to come into your home. If the odor persists you may want to open a window, or run a fan as you would if a strong cleaner was being used in a bathroom.   


Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact:
