New Sapperton Pump StationNew Sapperton Pump Station<div class="ExternalClass67318D5D69A9439990A64584B0E68EF9"> <p>The new pump station will be a three-level structure housing pumps, motors, piping, wet wells, and electrical/control equipment. It will be located on a site that runs along the Brunette Fraser Greenway, and as with many facilities being developed on old industrial sites (it was formerly home to the Brunette Sawmill), the area around the new pump station will be developed as parkland and will include ecological restoration.</p> <p>To support park use, the new building will provide space for Metro Vancouver Regional Park staff facilities, public washrooms, wayfinding signage, bike parking, drinking fountains, and garbage and recycling bins. A paved multi-use greenway trail for walking and cycling will connect to the existing Brunette Fraser Regional Greenway, and an access road and parking will be added. </p> <p>In addition to integration of the parks and sewer utility functions, the station will use high-efficiency motors, sustainable construction materials like high fly ash concrete and regionally sourced timber and masonry products. It will also be able to recover heat from the sewers. Other sustainability features include energy-efficient PowerSmart interior and exterior lighting including automatic switching, and maximizing use of natural light and ventilation.</p></div>http://www.metrovancouver.org/metroupdate/PublishingImages/Pump.jpg2014-11-01T07:00:00ZGP0|#2fa185f6-6c4a-4b0c-8689-5bb359637cd2;L0|#02fa185f6-6c4a-4b0c-8689-5bb359637cd2|Issue 3;GTSet|#d14ffe11-45dc-48fb-8684-ff109cf15a74<div class="ExternalClass5C366D6D03E748E8B031CCAD4B05B5C6"> <p>The 38-year-old Sapperton Pump Station in New Westminster will be replaced with a new liquid waste pump station on the 1.9-acre site adjacent to Metro Vancouver’s Sapperton Landing property. The new facility is expected to be finished in 2018.</p> <p>Replacement of the existing pump station is required because of continued growth in the service area, which includes Burnaby, New Westminster, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody. The facility is Metro Vancouver’s largest sewage pump station and a critical component of the liquid waste system, handling about a third of the incoming flow at the Annacis Island Wastewater Treatment Plant. </p></div>
