9 Water and Waste Department Rehabilitation of the Mid-Town Water Main Kas Zurek, Design and Construction Engineer

10 10 Introduction History – 1957 to present Options – repair or replace Construction plans for 2011 / 2012

11 11 Mid-town water main A 900 millimetre (3 feet) diameter water pipe A critical component of the Citys water distribution system Balances the flow between two water reservoirs located in south and north Winnipeg

12 12 History Bridge constructed in 1958 Bridge and pipe are now approaching the end of their useful life

13 13 Damage from pipe freeze in 1993 Concrete structure damage Pipe damage

14 14 Pipe repairs in 1993

15 15 Evaluation process Assessed the condition of the pipe and bridge structure Determined that work was required Evaluated several repair/ rehabilitation strategies

16 16 Recommended option Replace the pipe and reinforce the existing bridge structure –cost effective –provides the longest service life

17 17 Options evaluated Install a new pipe by drilling beneath the Assiniboine River – difficult soil conditions Install a new pipe by open cut beneath the Assiniboine River – high ground water conditions, difficult soil conditions, regulatory concerns by Department of Fisheries and Oceans Repair the pipe by internal lining methods – cost prohibitive Other consideration Build a new bridge to support the water main and a pedestrian/ bike path – no funding support

18 18 Rehabilitation – construction activities

19 19 Rehabilitation – construction activities

20 20 Aubrey Green safety upgrades New fencing to clearly identify the two distinct uses – Water and Waste facilities, park area A new pathway leading to the river Remove or restrict lighting New fencing to prevent access to the properties east of the water main New landscaping on the lower river bank to deter unauthorized gatherings (e.g., late night parties, bon fires)

21 21 Proposed construction schedule September 2011 to June 2012 Sequence of work –remove existing pipe –upgrade the bridge structure –recoat (paint) the bridge structure –install the new pipe –landscape and restore the site
