Jervis Pump Station Upgrade




Jervis Pump Station UpgradeJervis Pump Station Upgrade<div class="ExternalClassFAD24A61D1D54DAA89B2EC374C544B9F"><p>The Jervis Pump Station is part of critical sewer infrastructure located at Sunset Beach Park, on the southwest side of downtown in the City of Vancouver. The Jervis Pump Station safely moves wastewater from downtown Vancouver to the Iona Island Wastewater Treatment Plant in Richmond. Over the next two years, Metro Vancouver will be installing backup power to the Jervis Pump Station as part of our commitment to protecting public health and the environment.</p><p>Metro Vancouver will install a temporary backup generator in fall 2023 to continue to provide reliable power to the pump station during power outages, preventing sanitary sewer overflows in English Bay. Work will begin in October 2023 and is anticipated to be complete in December 2023. The temporary generator will be in place until the permanent generator project is installed in the future. </p><p>Metro Vancouver is working closely with the Vancouver Park Board to ensure the temporary and permanent generators blend well into Sunset Beach Park, preserving its natural beauty. After the completion of the permanent generator project, the temporary generator will be removed and the site will be restored to its pre-construction condition. ​<br></p></div>City of Vancouver
