Cost for North End sewage upgrades now pegged at $1.4B

CBC News, Dec 1, 2017 – Winnipeg’s most expensive construction project is now even more expensive.

Upgrades to the North End water-pollution control centre, the largest of the city’s three sewage treatment plants, are now expected to cost $1.4 billion, a rise of $600 million from the last estimate.

A report to city council’s finance committee said the higher cost is a result of a new conceptual design. While officials hinted in September the new estimate would be “more than $1 billion,” the report published Friday┬áis the first to formalize the new project cost.
