Construction of Angus Drive Main Complete Construction of Angus Drive Main Complete <div class="ExternalClass297AF792AB4D400AAFA6F8736FD81EFF"><p>Metro Vancouver has recently completed construction of the Angus Drive Water Main. This main connects the Capilano Main system at Angus Drive and West 33rd Avenue to the existing North Arm Crossing of the Fraser River at Angus Drive and West 75th Avenue in the City of Vancouver. The project is designed to meet increasing water demands and improve the reliability of water supply to Vancouver, Richmond and Delta.</p><p>This project consists of approximately 4 kilometres of 1.5 metre (60 inch) diameter steel water main and a number of underground valve and pressure reducing chambers. Construction began in April 2014 and the final system tie-ins were completed in April 2016. </p><p>The project includes a significant pressure reducing valve chamber in the Fraser River Park near Angus Drive and West 75<sup>th</sup> Avenue. This pressure reduction ensures that the higher water pressure that originates from the Capilano system does not over pressurize the infrastructure within our local governments south of the Fraser River. </p><p>Crews are currently in the process of commissioning these large diameter pressure reducing valves and we anticipate that the Angus Drive Main will be in service by the end of May 2016. </p><p><em>Metro Vancouver and local governments work continuously to maintain and expand the drinking water distribution system to meet water demands in the region. The ongoing efficient use of our water by residents and business reduces the need for system expansion. <a href="/services/water/water-conservation/lawn-sprinkling/Pages/default.aspx" target="_blank">Being waterwise</a> is especially important during summer months when rainfall is lowest and outdoor water demand is highest.</em></p></div>|#073170bf-6321-4af1-9a6c-77213bdeb19d;L0|#0073170bf-6321-4af1-9a6c-77213bdeb19d|Issue 21;GTSet|#d14ffe11-45dc-48fb-8684-ff109cf15a74<div class="ExternalClass575B862FDE17470297EF91BD7005D4B3"><p>‚ÄčA new watermain is now installed along 4 kilometres of Angus Drive in Vancouver from 33<sup>rd</sup> to 75<sup>th</sup>, and will be in service by the end of May, to carry quality drinking water to Vancouver, Richmond and Delta. </p></div>0
