Re: Update for Infrastructure Revitalization in Riverside Meadows and Fairview Neighbourhoods

Due to the limitations of public gatherings because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we would be unable to conduct face-to-face meetings with residents to update everyone and answer any questions or concerns that you may have on the project. While we are still unable to host in-person meetings, we are reaching out to provide this update to you. 

Detailed design work for the first phase of the project is complete and, after some unforeseen delays, we are ready to commence with the construction of the first phase. 

Pidherney’s Inc. has been selected as the contractor who will be completing this work. The start of construction is fast approaching in June 2021. The planned works for Phase one (1) are anticipated to be substantially complete in the fall of 2021. The work will include replacing underground utilities (water, sanitary and storm), road improvements, sidewalk, landscaping and trail upgrades in specific areas. 

We recognize that residents will have questions and concerns such as: 

  • Road closures and detour plans; 
  • Water interruption and temporary water supply; 
  • Tree and shrub management, etc. 

The City and Pidherney’s Inc. are working closely to develop a suitable communication strategy to keep residents informed during the construction period. A dedicated webpage will be created for this project where we will host all of the information we feel you will need to know as well as contact information. 

We understand that this may be a short-term inconvenience; however, we hope to work together with you in a collaborative manner for the long-term improvement of your neighbourhood. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at 403-342-8158 or email: engineering(at)reddeer.ca. We will also do our best to keep our City website up to date, which can be viewed at any time by visiting https://www.reddeer.ca/city-services/roads/construction-season/.

Sincerely,

The City of Red Deer

Your water valve located at the water meter in your home will be required to be turned off at the appropriate time to receive temporary water service. A Pidherney’s employee will also contact you and review the procedure required for your temporary water. If you have any concerns about closing this valve or having a Pidherney’s representative enter your home to close your water valve due to Covid-19 or other reasons, please contact one the of the representatives noted below at your earliest convenience to minimize water service disruption. 

Once the temporary water has been put into service, a Pidherney representative will inspect the connection to your home daily to ensure it is maintained to required standards.

We ask residents to be mindful of the temporary water infrastructure and connection to their homes. If there are concerns with potential leaking connections, please contact a Pidherney representative at your earliest convenience. 

Our estimated time to arrive at your residence is the weeks of July 5 to the week of August 2, 2021, at which point the required work will be explained. In order to complete the water connection, your valve at the water meter will be required to be turned off prior to supplying your home with temporary water.
