No doubt you are aware that your water main brings water into your home. You’ve probably grumbled when driving through the city, and you’ve encountered street areas that are blocked off to accommodate work crews. At High Mark Plumbing, we are aware of the hard work that goes into managing a water resource network. Those workmen might very well be taking care of a water main replacement in Calgary.
The City of Calgary takes care of the fresh water and waste water networks that connect to your homes. The city network of water systems included more than 4,650 kilometers of water mains. This network is essential to bringing fresh water to homes and businesses in our area. The city maintains the parts that run under streets and that bring the water to your meter. You are responsible for the pipes that bring the water from the meter into your home. You know how interesting it can get, especially in winter, to keep those pipes in good condition. Imagine if your responsibility ran to 4,650 kilometers of pipe, instead of just a few feet!
