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 several years. Construction for the first phase of the project ​between the Brunette River and just north of Lougheed Highway on North Road was completed in 2020. </p><p>The second phase of the project extends along North Road from Lougheed Highway to Clarke Road. ​​Preparatory ​work began in late 2023, and main construction in early 2024. <br></p><p> <a href="/services/liquid-waste/ConstructionDocuments/factsheet-northroad.pdf" target="_blank">Fact Sheet - N​orth Roa​d Sewer​​​​​</a><br></p></div>North Road, cities of Burnaby and Coquitlam
