Institute of Ocean Sciences Patricia Bay - Wharf Waterline Replacement

The first portion of the  project involves the removal of the existing wharf waterline infrastructure components and the installation of a new piping and an above grade sump pump system. The second part involves the replacement of the existing water and fire supply system piping, valve and hydrant system for the wharf area which will involve a new buried water and fire supply system  piping, valves and hydrant. The project will occur in the same footprint therefore, there will be very little new ground disturbance for this task. This project is in support of the overall IOS wharf refurbishment project.
