Port Mann Water Supply Tunnel and Associated Water MainsPort Mann Water Supply Tunnel and Associated Water Mains<div class="ExternalClassC87C40A30F0D4C31AFAF0191245474CB"><p>Metro Vancouver is undertaking two major infrastructure projects in Surrey and Coquitlam to ensure the continued supply of safe, clean drinking water to residents and businesses in the region. </p><p>The first project is called Port Mann Water Supply Tunnel which runs underneath the Fraser River from Maquabeak Park in Coquitlam to Surrey. This project involves burrowing an 80-metre-long tunnel 30 metres below the riverbed and installing a 2.1 metre-diameter welded steel water pipe through the tunnel. </p><p>This new water supply tunnel is expected to be complete in Spring 2017.</p><p>The second is the Port Mann Water Main Project which involves installing a new 1.5 meter-diameter water main and valve chambers on either side of the Fraser River in Coquitlam and in Surrey. Construction began in fall 2015 and is expected to be complete in fall 2017. </p><p>Once the water supply tunnel is complete and the associated water mains are installed, they will be tied-in to each other and ultimately be connected to the existing pipeline system. Together, these projects will more than double the capacity of the existing water supply system and accommodate the region’s future population growth. </p></div>Under the Fraser River near Port Mann Bridge and on the north and south sides of the Fraser River, Coquitlam and Surrey.
