The City of Kelowna has announced work will begin this week to move the Skyline Pump station above ground.
The original pump station built at the corner of High Road and Clifton Road was established underground in the 1990's to pump potable water to higher elevations.
These improvements will address flooding and safety issues with the construction of a new electrical room and relocation of the equipment above ground. The new facility will be built on top of the existing underground one.
This is a $1 million project which will not impact traffic in the area, aside from occasional interruptions to allow for the delivery of materials.
