The charging of the new water transmission line and the checking for leaks is now complete and the excavation has been covered.
“It looks like we are scheduled to be paving Chute Lake Road next week. (October 15 to 19)” says Scott Eadie, spokesman for the contractor Emil Anderson, “Pending any weather problems.”
The road was excavated to install a new water transmission line connecting the Adam’s Reservoir (above Kettle Valley) to an existing water line connection at the South Crest Drive/Chute Lake Road intersection."
This is the first phase of a massive $85 million 3 year water transition program funded by 3 tiers of government, which will eventually separate agricultural and domestic water systems for Southeast Kelowna and deliver a sustainable water supply for agriculture throughout Okanagan Mission.
