Drilling on the Main St. North waterline replacement project began last week. ‘Quite an operation,’ said town manager Brian Vance in an email to The Leader, accompanied by the above photograph. ‘We are drilling it rather than trenching.’ Bellerive Backhoe Service is doing the work, with the Town of Slave Lake as general contractor.
