North Road Sewer




North Road SewerNorth Road Sewer<div class="ExternalClassF9DCBB8559A7450D9E1B004B6224E23E"><p>​The North Road Sewer pipe collects sewage from the Cities of Burnaby and Coquitlam, and carries it to the Annacis Island Wastewater Treatment Plant in the City of Delta. To ensure wastewater continues to be managed safely and to accommodate regional growth, upgrades to the North Road Sewer pipe are necessary.</p><p>The new pipe is being constructed in multiple phases over the next several years. Crews completed construction of the first phase of the project on North Road between the Brunette River and just north of Lougheed Highway in 2020. </p><p>Construction for the second phase of the project, which extends along North Road from Lougheed Highway to Clarke Road, is scheduled to begin in late 2023 and will last up to 18 months. ​​<br></p><p><a href="/services/liquid-waste/ConstructionDocuments/northroad-factsheet-sep-2023.pdf" target="_blank">Fact Sheet - North Roa​d Sewer​​​​​</a><br></p></div>North Road, cities of Burnaby and Coquitlam
