HWY. 401 Service Centres – Water & Sanitary
In 2010, CJDL was retained by Oxford County to provide consulting services for extension of municipal water and sewage services to the Highway # 401-Woodstock (Eastbound) Service Centre. Our assignment included a feasibility study, an Environmental Assessment, detailed design, tendering, inspection, and contract administration. Construction was substantially completed in fall of 2011.
The project included construction of an onsite sewage pumping station at the Woodstock Service Centre and 7± km of 100mmø forcemain to a gravity sewer outlet located in Ingersoll. The forcement was installed by horizontal directional drilling along and across the Highway #401 corridor. A “stub” was installed for future connection of the Ingersoll Service Centre to the forcemain system.
A municipal water service was also provided to the Woodstock Service Centre via 4± km of 150mmø watermain connected to an existing watermain feed located in Sweaburg. A water storage reservoir/booster pumping station was constructed at the Service Centre to meet pressure demands and to have a temporary water supply in the event of an interruption to the municipal water feed. The booster pump system was enclosed with a manufactured fiberglass building mounted on the reservoir tank to protect SCADA controls and instrumentation.
