Cockburn and Calrossie Sewer Separation Project
The work for the project will be entirely contained on public property and will take place in Calrossie Toiler Park, along the Red River, east of Riverside Drive, between Byng Place and Calrossie Blvd.
The City of Winnipeg Water and Waste Department has identified that changes to the existing combined sewer system are required to alleviate basement flooding and reduce the number of combined sewer overflows in the Fort Garry/Fort Rouge area.
The Cockburn and Calrossie Combined Sewer Relief Works Conceptual Design Report was completed in 2010. The study determined that the current level of service (LOS) for the district's combined sewer is lower than a five year return period design storm.
Construction of new land drainage sewers (LDS) in the Cockburn and Calrossie combined sewer district will convey wet weather runoff freeing up capacity in the existing sewers and improving the LOS. The proposed sewer separation works will be carried out over a number of years requiring a tentative total of 15 contracts within the Fort Garry/Fort Rouge area. A number of contracts may vary depending on the scope of work.
Construction of combined sewer overflow and basement flood relief works in the Cockburn and Calrossie combined sewer district commenced in November 2013 with Contract 1. To date, six contracts have been completed at an investment of $66.7 Million. Nine more construction contracts are still required to complete the Cockburn and Calrossie sewer separation works. Details of the current contracts are as follows:
Contract No. 5
- Contract start date: June 2019
- Expected completion date: August 2020
- Estimated cost of contract: $11 Million

- Expected completion date: June 2021
- Estimated cost of contract: $4.8 Million

- Expected completion date: July 2020
- Estimated cost of contract: $4.2 Million
