Highbury Interceptor Air Management Facility



Highbury Interceptor Air Management FacilityHighbury Interceptor Air Management Facility<div class="ExternalClass9AC19CB90D90417E8D0516373B106C9A"><p>Metro Vancouver is planning to construct an air management facility in Musqueam Park to address odour issues along the Highbury Interceptor. </p><p>The Highbury Interceptor is a large sewer that carries the majority of Vancouver's wastewater to the Iona Island wastewater treatment plant. In recent years, odour complaints related to the sewer have been increasing. The facility will extract air from the sewer and filter it to remove odours before releasing the air into the atmosphere. The building will also contain a public washroom for park users.</p><p>Metro Vancouver is working with the City of Vancouver, the Vancouver Park Board, the Musqueam Indian Band and the community to plan the project. </p></div>Vancouver

<div class="ExternalClass4BC446338919487985CDA2A21CCE8B33"><p>​We have received some questions on how Metro Vancouver will address traffic impacts during construction. The equipment needed to build this facility is similar in type and size to those required to build a house. Once we have selected a contractor, likely in the fall of this year, we will work with them to develop a Traffic Mitigation Plan. That plan would be reviewed by the City of Vancouver. Residents will be provided with more information closer to that time.</p></div><div class="ExternalClassBF7081C4513745C99106CC2A29028264"><p>During construction, the anticipated hours of work are from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm Monday to Friday and 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturdays. If required, work may occasionally occur outside these hours to complete a specific task or maintain the construction schedule. </p><p>The project will generate noise similar to the construction of a house. The most significant work will occur in the first few months, after which most of the work will be done inside the facility and there will be less noise impact.</p> </div><div class="ExternalClass408C332361FD4181A27B942366BB6105"><p> <strong>Past Meetings:</strong></p><p>June 9, 2015 – Public Meeting, Musqueam Recreation Centre</p><p>June 25, 2014 - Interactive open house, Musqueam Recreation Centre</p><p>January – June 2014 – Various onsite stakeholder meetings</p><p>April 24, 2014 – Meeting with the West Southlands Ratepayers Association, Kerrisdale Community Centre</p><p>October 24, 2013 – Community open house, Marineview Chapel</p></div><div class="ExternalClass45726F1C4D494BFA8C305CD0E977FF35">Metro Vancouver is working with the community to ensure that its concerns and interests are considered during construction.
