Phase 2 Final Construction to be Completed in Spring – Sanitary Sewer Connection Getting Closer

Hazelwood (the Phase 2 contractor) has mostly left West Fernie as of this week.  Hazelwood will be back in the spring to complete the remaining works, including some shouldering and driveway paving, filling the ditches with 8” of topsoil and seed, paving the remaining roads, etc.

The RDEK and City of Fernie are scheduled to do a walk through today with the Contractor and Consultant to check the sanitary sewer.  The lift station also has some electrical work that should be completed by Wednesday.  If all goes well, we expect to allow connections to the sanitary sewer next week.

The latest update from the Province is that the City of Fernie’s boundary restructure to include the Phase 2 area should be complete before the end of November.

More to follow in the coming weeks, but that is the update for now.
