The provincial government will pay to relocate the water mains and sewer line under the proposed roundabout at the junction of Highway 5 and the road to Wells Gray Park.

District of Clearwater will supervise the work for the province, and the project could end saving the municipality a considerable amount of money, if the pipes ever needed upgrading.

Town council approved on Oct. 23 awarding a $364,000 contract to relocate the infrastructure under the proposed roundabout to Gable Construction of Kamloops.

That money will be reimbursed by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.

Council also authorized spending close to $11,000 to upgrade the waterlines and sewer that will be moved in order to meet future demand.

Approximate 260 meters of water main and appurtenances and will be relocated, along with 210 meters of sewer.
