Upgrades complete: James Street Water Booster Station

The $5.1 million upgrades to the James Street Water Booster Station are now complete, with our contractor J.C. Sulpher Construction Ltd.

This booster station conveys water to the system east of the Cataraqui River and is located in the Barriefield Heritage Conservation District. The upgrades were needed to replace ageing infrastructure and ensure adequate supply of water for the East Water System.

Included in the work are a building extension to house new pumps, electrical equipment and other associated infrastructure. Minor alterations were made to the underground infrastructure outside the building, along with a new standby power generator to ensure continued reliability of the water supply in the event of a power outage.

The upgraded facility will accommodate 20-year population growth projections.
