  • Private Side Hookups for Hydro Conversion

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    Dear resident/business:

    The new underground hydro infrastructure has successfully been energized and it is now time to permanently hookup your hydro to the new plant.

    Our contractor, RH Electric of Beamsville, will begin connecting hydro to the new plant starting next week. The Town will be contacting individuals a few days in advance of work being performed at your property. It could be a few weeks before we get to your connection.

    What to expect on the day your hydro is being converted:

    • RH Electric will prep the switchover and complete as much work as possible prior to turning off your power
    • Expect to be without power for 4 hours as connections are made to your homes/businesses electric meter

    It is not expected that RH Electric will need to enter the residence/business, but if they do we will reach out to owners on an individual basis.

    If you have any questions or would like to schedule a site meeting to review your electrical connection further, please contact Dave Bader 905-563-2799 ext. 284 or dbader@lincoln.ca

    Thank you for your patience on this critical component of the Jordan Village Improvement Project.

  • Sump Pump Plumbing and Outlet Alterations

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    As part of the Jordan Village Improvement Project, all roadside ditches will be eliminated along Main and Nineteenth Streets and replaced with curb and gutter and storm sewer. As such, all residents/businesses that have a sump pump outlet that discharges to the existing ditch will need to alter their plumbing to ensure that their sump pumps will continue to work properly.

    At this time, the Town is asking residents and businesses to confirm the following information:

    1. House Number & Street Name

    2. Do you have a Sump Pump installed?

    • If not sure, please contact Dave for assistance (info below)

    3. If answered “Yes” above, do you know where the sump outlets to:

    • Ditch, Yard, Storm Sewer, Other, Not Sure
      • If other, please specify
      • If not sure, please contact Dave for assistance (info below)

    Please call or email Dave with your answers to the above questions.

    Once these answers are received, Dave will reach out regarding next steps which may include:

    • Nothing (for those whose sump pumps drain into a yard or overground)
    • Converting from ditch outlet to yard outlet or connection to storm sewer (for those whose sump pumps outlet to ditch or have storm sewer connection)

    If you have any questions or would like to schedule a site meeting to review your sump pump situation further, please contact Dave Bader 905-563-2799 ext. 284 or dbader@lincoln.ca

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

    Nineteenth Street Closure (Wismer St. to King St.) Enbridge Gas Relocation Works


    To facilitate the relocation of the existing gas main, Nineteenth Street will be closed from Wismer Street to King Street. The closure is expected to last 3 days starting Tuesday, April 20, 2021 at 7:00 a.m.

    Detour Routes:

    • When heading north, head down Main Street and join Nineteenth Street at the Wismer Street Intersection.
