The city has held a ceremony at Corktown Park to celebrate the completion of a 26 million dollar infrastructure project.
The construction of the new Ferguson Avenue Pumping Station took more than two years.
General Manager of Public Works Gerry Davis says it ensures a safe and reliable water supply for tens of thousands of Hamiltonians by replacing a facility that had reached the end of its life cycle and services most of the downtown core.
The project’s cost was split by the city, federal and provincial governments.
Students from nearby Queen Victoria were also involved in the ceremony after designing a medallion which now hangs over the gateway entrance to Corktown Park.
It depicts the Niagara Escarpment, Lake Ontario, a rail line and a number of historic neighbourhood buildings.
