TAYLOR, B.C. – At a District of Taylor Council Meeting on Tuesday, August 6, Council made the approval to go ahead with upgrading a section of the potable water line on Willow Drive.

Since its installation in 2010, District Staff say there have been multiple repairs due to ground movement and two complete failures of the ductile iron pipe, which was caused by corrosion.

Due to corrosion, in 2017 the District replaced a portion of the existing material with a more resilient type.

Council made the decision to award the potable water line replacement project to Big League Utilities Corp. for the amount of $289,044.
