Capilano Water Main Construction UpdateCapilano Water Main Construction Update<div class="ExternalClass3103C264ECC541C1B5C0A29AFEC805B8"><p>The Capilano Water Main Project replaces an existing aging water main to improve water supply and meet increasing demand for clean, safe drinking water. The new 2-metre diameter regional water main has been installed in the District of North Vancouver along Capilano Road between Cleveland Dam and Edgemont Boulevard. </p><p>The significant excavation required for the new water main is complete, and the new water main is now delivering drinking water from the Capilano and Seymour watersheds to residents and businesses on the North Shore and across the region. Paving is currently being completed, and is scheduled to be finished this summer. The $29M project also includes installation of new valve chambers and replacement of existing municipal infrastructure along Capilano Road.</p><p>Throughout the project, Metro Vancouver worked closely with the community, various advisory committees, Grouse Mountain Resorts, Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, and the District of North Vancouver. Metro Vancouver had a comprehensive engagement program with local residents, to ensure information about construction was clear and to provide them with the opportunity to voice concerns. </p><p>Construction of the Edgemont Valve Chamber on Edgemont Boulevard, immediately east of Capilano Road, has been postponed until fall of 2016. This is to avoid potential water service interruptions during the summer months when there is a high demand for drinking water. The Edgemont Valve Chamber is expected to be complete in the spring of 2017.</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. Being waterwise is especially important during summer months when rainfall is lowest and outdoor water demand is highest.</em></p></div>|#2d395db4-59c2-4bcd-8cf3-118afd214b4e;L0|#02d395db4-59c2-4bcd-8cf3-118afd214b4e|Issue 23;GTSet|#d14ffe11-45dc-48fb-8684-ff109cf15a74<div class="ExternalClassE2D583DC202F4A0493938ADF39E2C81C"><p>‚ÄčA new water main has just been installed along Capilano Road on North Vancouver.
