Utility Upgrades

Underground utility projects banner

Last summer, the City completed important work to update the stormwater system (to reduce the possibility of flooding) and update old copper water lines (that were eroding into the soil).

Residents saw these upgrades over the summer months, beginning in May 2022. 

Stormwater and catch basin improvements began in The Cove in May, followed by copper water service replacements in The Cove and Lakeview through August 2022.

The City thanks all affected residents for their patience and understanding with inconveniences such as temporary road closures, limited access to driveways and greenspaces, construction noise and street parking restrictions that may have occurred during construction.

Funded by the Government of Alberta’s Municipal Stimulus Plan grant program, these upgrades will improve the City’s resiliency to future flooding events.

Stormwater Upgrades throughout Chestermere

When snow melts or rain happens, stormwater systems collect this water and divert it to stormwater facilities so it doesn’t flood homes. Upgrades to the stormwater mains, catch basins, and overland drainage are necessary to ensure our systems can properly handle significant rain events, function at optimal capacity, and eliminate rainwater pooling on the roads or on private property. 

After Chestermere experienced torrential rain in 2015, the City conducted stormwater modelling to examine where systems could be modified or improved. Areas not capable of handling another 1 in 100-year storm event were identified and several are now slated for upgrading.  

Stormwater upgrades are expected to take place in the following areas:


  • Cove Landing/Cove Bay
  • Cove Point Pathway
  • Cove Point/Cove Drive
  • Cove Landing/Cove Bay
  • Windermere Drive
  • Springmere Drive/Invermere Drive
  • Springmere Road
  • Parkmere Court
  • Merganser Drive
  • Willowmere Close, Willowmere Way, Willowmere green space
  • Parkmere Court
  • Aspenmere Place
  • East Chestermere Drive
  • Rainbow Falls Lane, Rainbow Falls Link, Rainbow Falls Blvd
  • Site 16: Long Beach Landing/West Chestermere Drive
