Construction of Wellington water and sewer trunks to begin May 13

Construction of new water and sewer trunks in Wellington will begin on Monday, May 13.

The municipality expects to complete the project by the end of 2025.

The new trunks will be constructed from the location of the existing water and wastewater treatments plants to the east along Wellington Main Street, north on Cleminson Street, east along the Millennium Trail and then connect to the new water tower on Belleville Street.

The project also includes a new sanitary pumping station located on the Millennium Trail near the intersection with West Street. This pumping station is a component of the new trunk sanitary sewer.

A new trunk watermain is required to meet the water distribution and storage needs of the existing residents and future development within the Wellington urban serviced area. The new sewer trunks will accommodate the anticipated increase in wastewater flows from new developments.

Work will begin along the Millennium Trail on Monday, May 13, which will result in trail closures over the next several weeks:

Monday, May 13 to Monday May 20

  • The Millennium Trail Street will be closed to all users between Belleville Street and Wharf
  • Trail users will be directed around the closure via Wharf Street, Niles Street, and Belleville Street

Tuesday, May 21 until Tuesday, July 23

  • The Millennium Trail will be closed for all users between Belleville Street and Consecon Street
  • Trail users will be directed around the closure via Consecon Street, 2nd Avenue, West Street, Niles Street, and Belleville Street.

The first road traffic impact for this project will be a single-lane closure on Belleville Street between 1st Avenue and the Millennium Trail beginning in early June. Further information about this closure will be shared with the public in the coming weeks.

The trunk project will require a full closure of Wellington Main Street between Cleminson Street and the wastewater treatment plant. The closure is expected to start in the Fall of 2024. More information about this closure including exact dates and the detour route will be shared in August.
