Installing Fiber Optic Cables in Storm Drain Lines – An initiative by the City of Calgary

The objective of this project was to utilize existing underground concrete storm drain lines to transport new fiber optic cables within an urban area. Storm drain lines are an integral part of the civil infrastructure in most North American cities and offer an ideal environment to install fiber optic cables.

PCI replaced existing cables in the city of Calgary’s storm drains with high caliber fiber optic. A special conduit system imported from Europe was brought in by PCI and adapted to meet the needs of the North American project.
