Keyworth Avenue Sewer Work
In local news – The Keyworth Avenue Sewer is being Rehabilitated.
The city’s contractor has been installing a temporary sewer pipe from the corner of Clearview and Keyworth right over the Carleton Avenue bridge and onto Scott Street. Once the sewer under Keyworth has been bypassed, they’ll be relining it to make it last longer (delaying the need to dig it up and replace it).
Of course, during this work Keyworth will be even more impassible than usual (lots of house construction already clogs up the south end). There was even a bus detour to completely avoid the street on Thursday due to a gas leak. Though they did bury most of the temporary pipe, so Keyworth should be mostly back to normal during the relining operation.
Temporary sewer pipe crosses Carleton Avenue bridge and goes down south side of Amanda Avenue.

Triple Redundancy! Three pumps feed into the temporary pipeline. Things would get messy if you had just one pump and it went out of action!
