Douglas Road Water Main – Still Creek South Section


Thank You!

During February, Metro Vancouver engaged residents and the broader community about the Douglas Road Water Main – Still Creek South Section project. Thank you to everyone who took the time to learn about and provide feedback on the project. Your input is important to us and will be used to minimize construction impacts wherever possible.

We will share a summary of what we heard from the community soon. In the meantime, if you have any questions or comments about this project, please contact our community liaison at 604-432-6200 or​.​​



Douglas Road Water Main - Still Creek South SectionDouglas Road Water Main - Still Creek South Section<div class="ExternalClassD7CC56006BA4418EB682BE120C7AC080"><p>Metro Vancouver is replacing the existing Douglas Road Water Main which spans 15 kilometres between North Burnaby and the City of New Westminster. This water main was built in the 1940s and has reached the end of its service life. This replacement project has been phased over several years due to the length of the water main and the Still Creek Section is the final phase of the project.<br></p><p>The Still Creek Section is approximately 2.2 kilometres long and is located primarily along Douglas Road in the Still Creek neighbourhood of Burnaby.</p><p>The Still Creek South Section is scheduled for late 2023 until fall 2025.
