Metro Vancouver provides reliable, cost-effective wastewater treatment that protects public health and the environment. Our system consists of over 530 km of trunk sewers, 34 wastewater pump stations and five regional treatment plants that process over 1 billion litres of wastewater every day. Resources are recovered throughout the system, including heat, energy and biosolids.
This service is guided by the
Board Strategic Plan and the
Integrated Liquid Waste and Resource Management Plan.
