Hamlet of Suffield Water Supply Pipeline Project - Canadian Forces Base Suffield

The Department of National Defence (DND) is proposing to construct a new water supply pipeline between a tie-in point east of the Ralston Water Treatment Plant and the south boundary of Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Suffield to replace an existing section of 200 mm diameter cast iron pipeline. The Cypress County led initiative involves the construction of a 2,438 meter water supply pipeline to replace an existing cast iron pipeline. CFB involvement in the project will remain limited to the 340 meter portion (approximate) of the pipeline present on federal land.
