Water and Wastewater Infrastructure


​Reservoirs, pipes, pumps, treatment plants, roads, power lines, dikes, and other built infrastructure provide us with essential services like drinking water, sewage treatment, storm water drainage, solid waste disposal, transportation, and energy to residents and businesses.​​​​​

Local governments have been active in climate action for twenty years, but we need to do more. Metro Vancouver is working with residents, municipalities, and other partners to develop a roadmap for climate action for infrastructure, with a focus on water and wastewater infrastructure, in this region.

In 2021 Metro Vancouver published a discussion paper exploring opportunities for emissions reductions for water and wastewater infrastructure. This paper supports an ongoing conversation on the bold actions required today to achieve a carbon neutral region by 2050.
