Niagara Street Pipe Assembly and Pipe Pull
The pipe assembly and pipe pull is now complete. For six weeks, Niagara Street was used to assemble a 940-metre pipe above ground before it was pulled into a cross-harbour undersea tunnel from Ogden Point to McLoughlin Point. The tunnel was drilled using a process called horizontal directional drilling and began in July 2017 and was completed in April 2018, ahead of schedule.
Beginning the first week of March, 78 pipe sections were welded together and the pipe was moved into place on rollers on Niagara Street from South Turner to St. Lawrence. Over three days, cranes and sidebooms lifted the pipe in the 100 block of Niagara where the pipe was threaded into the tunnel at Ogden Point and pulled from the McLoughlin Point side.
As part of the Wastewater Treatment Project, the pipe will transport wastewater from the Clover Point Pump Station to the treatment plant for tertiary treatment.
