Improvements to liquid waste treatment East FraserImprovements to liquid waste treatment East Fraser<div class="ExternalClass87D91AA6126E4875935652B16524C609"><p>One of the key goals in the Board Strategic Plan is to plan for growth while working with members to identify and implement new efficiencies in the regional and local liquid waste systems. To address the long-term regional growth projections, staff has recently completed a comprehensive sewer servicing and facility plan (Plan) for the eastern part of the Fraser Sewerage Area. </p><p>The Plan includes expansion of the Northwest Langley Treatment Plant and outfall to facilitate diversion of flows from the Cities of Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge which are currently serviced by the Annacis Island Wastewater Treatment Plan. The Plan also includes a new pump station in Maple Ridge, a river crossing and a sewer overflow storage facility. The Plan is projected to result in a saving of about $280 million in servicing costs over the next 30 years.</p><p>The Plan, with an estimated capital cost of $800 million over the next 10 years, was endorsed by the Board in September. Staff will soon proceed with a project definition report for the Northwest Langley Wastewater Treatment Plant expansion to define the scope of work, an indicative design, project schedule and cost estimates which will form the basis to advance to the design phase over the next few years.</p></div>http://www.metrovancouver.org/metroupdate/PublishingImages/issue25-eastriver.jpg2016-10-31T07:00:00ZGP0|#3f3e419f-0fa5-4790-ac10-a80ab0188ba4;L0|#03f3e419f-0fa5-4790-ac10-a80ab0188ba4|Issue 25;GTSet|#d14ffe11-45dc-48fb-8684-ff109cf15a74<div class="ExternalClass6E3AAEED93924F5BB731A0576936F827"><p>​Metro Vancouver's Liquid Waste Department recently completed a comprehensive sewer servicing and facility plan for the eastern part of the Fraser Sewerage Area to treat liquid waste and protect the environment over the coming years. </p></div>0East Fraser Servicing and Treatment Projects
