The Albert Street Sewer helps collect sewage from the Cities of Port Moody and Coquitlam and carry it to the Annacis Island Wastewater Treatment Plant in the City of Delta. The existing sewer is currently operating at full capacity and is vulnerable to overflows.
Metro Vancouver is upgrading the Albert Street Sewer as part of our commitment to protect public health and the environment. The new pipe is being designed to enhance environmental protection by preventing sewage backups and overflows, and accommodate future population growth throughout the region.
The Albert Street Sewer Upgrade will take place in phases, beginning in 2019 and continuing for several years. Crews will begin construction on the next phase of the project, extending from Spring Street to Vintner Street in spring 2021 using open-cut and tunneling construction methods (see map and panels below for details). Construction for this phase of the project will take approximately six months to complete.
Location: City of Port Moody
