Construction of the Nelson Street Booster Pumping Station will take place in 2021. The project was identified in the Water and Wastewater Servicing Master Plan, to provide better water distribution to the Western portion of Meaford.

 Project Description

The replacement of the Nelson Street Booster Pumping Station will see a re-location of the booster station to the Meaford Water Tower Property, and will include the installation of additional pumps as part of overall distribution improvements. The current facility is underground and does not have sufficient land to replace or upgrade components. The facility will be constructed above ground and will share similar aesthetics to the St. Vincent Booster Station.

As per the Water and Wastwater Master Servicing Plan, the replacement of the Nelson Street Booster Station requires the upgrading of the existing 150mm Cast Iron watermain to a 200mm PVC Watermain from the existing Nelson Stree Booster Station to Pearson Street in order to achieve the required pressure and fire flows in the upper servicing zone, including the Meaford Hospital.
