A four-week project to in­stall a wa­ter main ex­ten­sion on MacEl­mon Road in De­bert is slated to be­gin in early Novem­ber.

Colch­ester County Coun­cil on Mon­day ap­proved a bid of $181,840 (plus HST) sub­mit­ted by J.R. Eisener Con­tract­ing for the project.

The bid was the low­est of four re­ceived by the mu­nic­i­pal­ity.

The work in­cludes the in­stal­la­tion of 380 me­tres of wa­ter main in prepa­ra­tion for con­struc­tion of a new round­about planned for MacEl­mon Road exit on High­way 104. The round­about is aimed at sup­port­ing con­struc­tion of new roads along the High­way 104 frontage, which in turn will open up new lands for devel­op­ment.

The pro­vin­cial and fed­eral gov­ern­ments have con­trib­uted a to­tal of $562,363 in fund­ing to­wards the cost of con­struct­ing wa­ter, sewer and storm- wa­ter ser­vic­ing for the round­about project.

The MacEl­mon Road work will rep­re­sent the start of that work.
