By McGill Reporter Staff

The major City of Montreal project to replace water and sewer lines on McTavish St., from Sherbrooke St. to Dr. Penfield Ave., finally got under way on Wednesday, April 30.

The City had hoped to do preliminary work a couple of weeks ago, but the ground was still too frozen. No work was done during the exam period, which finished Tuesday, April 29. That preliminary work will now take place in two phases over the first two weeks of the project, before construction begins in earnest in the middle of May.

The next time your dentist gives you the bad news about a fresh cavity eating away one of your molars and you throw your hands up and protest “But I brush and floss twice a day,” remember the words of Leon Trotsky, who said “Technique is noticed most markedly in the case of those who have not mastered it.”

The City of Montreal plans to start work next week on preparations for a major construction project on McTavish St. that will continue throughout the summer.

Sewer and water lines, some of which that are nearly 100 years old, will be replaced. At McGill’s request, the City will install additional storm sewer drains to help deal with water in the event of a flood similar to that of a little more than a year ago.

By Doug Sweet

Feeding the world is complicated. And if there’s any major public issue that engages many academic disciplines at once, this is surely one. Agriculture. Environment. Economics. Engineering. Politics.
