Utilities Kingston is inviting community members to attend an information session on the Front Road and King Street West sewer and water project, which will likely recommence construction this spring.

According to a release from Utilities Kingston, project updates will be provided by leaders from Utilities Kingston, who will also be available to answer questions during an in-person session on Wednesday, May 24, at 6:30 p.m.

Community members are invited to the Press Lounge at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, located at 53 Yonge Street. Utilities Kingston noted that among those attending are David Fell, President and CEO; Remi Adedapo, Director of Utilities Engineering; and Chris Phippen, Manager of Utilities Engineering.

This event is a follow-up to a session held on September 26, 2022, which was followed by an update from the organization as the winter approached. Updates will also be posted to by the end of May, the utility company stated.

Utilities Kingston provided the following details about the project:

This project will redirect sewage from the Portsmouth Pumping Station and interconnect a trunk water main. It is expected to save energy, reduce sewer overflows, create capacity to support downtown development, and improve operations and system performance. 

The Project is being implemented over multiple years and phases with construction on Phase 2A initiated in 2021 and partially completed in 2022. This phase of the project affects areas along Front Road and King Street West from Sand Bay Lane (Front Road bridge) to Country Club Drive. Utilities Kingston is currently working through options for the recommencement of this Phase of the project. Phase 2B and Phase 3 will be advanced, sequentially, following the completion of Phase 2A.
