The City of Kamloops has contracted Extreme Excavating Ltd. to replace the trunk sewer main along Lansdowne Street from 7th Avenue to 1st Avenue is the initial phase of the City Centre Sanitary Upgrades group of projects. Two additional subsequent phases located in the downtown core will also be a part of this project. The purpose of the project is for the Lansdowne portion of the trunk main to service a broader area. Currently, there is no dedicated gravity trunk servicing the City Centre area. The existing network has reached capacity in many areas and will not support expected density increases in the contributing areas, specifically the Central Business District.
