Irrigation Upgrades, Columbarium Expansion Scheduled for Hillside Cemetery
Medicine Hat – Aging irrigation lines in Hillside Cemetery will be replaced this summer as crews work to expand the Columbarium area. The entire irrigation system will be rehabilitated within the next couple years in phases.
The work will impact the northeast section of the cemetery and the columbarium garden area.
Visitors to the cemetery are still permitted during normal operating hours, however some pedestrians and vehicle detours may be in place. Please watch for signs posted in the area or visit the cemetery office for more information.
Work in the area is scheduled to begin early August and will last until November.
The City of Medicine Hat would like to thank residents for their patience and understanding as the necessary upgrades are completed to ensure safe and reliable infrastructure for years to come.
