Highbury Interceptor Air Management FacilityHighbury Interceptor Air Management Facility<div class="ExternalClass9AC19CB90D90417E8D0516373B106C9A"><p>Metro Vancouver’s Highbury Interceptor is a large sanitary sewer that conveys the majority of the City of Vancouver’s wastewater to the Iona Island Wastewater Treatment Plant in Richmond.</p><p> In recent years, odour complaints related to the Highbury Interceptor have increased. To address these issues, Metro Vancouver is constructing an air management facility in Musqueam Park. The facility has been designed to remove odour and minimize corrosion which will extend the life of the sewer system. Once air is treated inside the facility and stripped of odour, it is dispersed through the vent stack.<br></p> </div>City of Vancouver
