Bridgwater Trails Fountain

There are three spectacular fountains in the Neighbourhoods of Bridgwater, and one of them is located in the heart of Bridgwater Lakes. There have been a lot of challenges with the handoff of the Bridgwater Forest and Bridgwater Lakes fountains between the developer to the City of Winnipeg in regards to maintenance, warranties and operating costs. This past winter, a section of the tiling around Bridgwater Trails fountain shifted. The fountain still operates well, but there are uneven tiles and cracked concrete on the east side of the fountain. Manitoba Housing – the developer – has a structural engineer looking at the shifting. This fountain is under warranty for five years with an expiry date of 2019. Please know I recognize what an important community asset this feature is and will work with all involved to ensure it is kept in good running order and when the time comes, work to ensure the handoff is seamless.
