This new water supply tunnel completed in February 2017 and is now in service. </p><p><a href="/media-room/media-releases/water/460/port-mann-water-supply-tunnel-now-in-service" target="_blank">Media Release – Port Mann Water Supply Tunnel Now In Service</a></p><p><strong>Port Mann Water Main</strong></p> <p>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 of the new water main on the north side (Coquitlam) began in fall 2015 and is expected to be complete in fall 2017. Construction on the south side (Surrey) is expected to take place in summer 2018.</p><p>Once the water mains are installed, they will be tied-in to the water supply tunnel and ultimately be connected to the existing water distribution 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.
