    The existing Sapperton Pump Station is the region's largest pump station. It moves sewage from several municipalities to the treatment plant at Annacis Island. A new station is needed to meet the growing population in the region. In addition to a functioning sewer system, the project will also benefit the community by providing:

    • Habitat improvements, riverbank restoration, and ecological enhancements
    • New publically accessible green space
    • A public washroom
    • A plaza, landscaping and green space
    • Public art and/or interpretive materials
    • Opportunities for picnicking, fishing, and nature viewing
    • An extension to the Brunette-Fraser Regional Greenway
  • Hours of Work & Noise

    Work will take place between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. All noise will comply with City of New Westminster noise bylaws or granted bylaw variances.
