Snelgrove Elevated Tank Decommissioning Update
This notice is to provide you with an update on the construction work taking place on the Snelgrove Elevated Water Tank located just south of Mayfield Road off Cresthaven Road.
The Elevated Tank was expected to be taken out of service prior to 2020 once the Victoria Reservoir and feedermain were constructed. However, when the reservoir work was deferred, the tank decommissioning was also deferred, and over time the Snelgrove Elevated Tank appearance worsened.
The Region started looking into alternative options for the future of the elevated tank and it was determined that the tank can be removed if a few watermain upgrades are completed within the area. Based on these findings, the Region intends to complete the upgrades as quickly as possible so that the tank can be removed. Currently we have the following timelines for the work.
