Multi-Million Dollar Water System Construction Underway

Crews are about to break ground on a multi-million dollar upgrade to the Killiney Beach water system.   As weather allows through next spring, approximately three kilometers of aging water main will be replaced with new pipe along five roads in the upper area of the system which serves more than 280 connections throughout the subdivision along the north area of Westside Road.   View News Release / View Water Projects webpage

Preliminary Water System Design Funded
