Winston Street Sewer Project



Winston Street Sewer ProjectWinston Street Sewer Project<div class="ExternalClassD5B250786B084833AEEBF5CFA1A020F7"><p>The Winston Street Sewer carries wastewater from the City of Burnaby to the Annacis Island Wastewater Treatment Plant in the City of Delta. In order to accommodate future growth in the City of Burnaby, and to ensure continued protection of public health and the environment, this sewer pipe needs to be replaced with a new, larger pipe. It will be approximately 3.2 kilometers long and will be installed by open trench and tunneling methods (see map for project location). </p><p>Construction for Phase Two started in May 2022 and will take approximately two years to complete.<br></p></div>Winston Street, from Lougheed Highway to east of Piper Avenue, City of Burnaby

Due to the nature of tunneling, equipment is required to run continuously to safely complete this work, therefore crews will be working 24 hours a day, seven days a week.</p><p>Piling and other noisy activities will be scheduled to take place during the day. Noise levels will be monitored during construction and all work will comply with city of Burnaby bylaws or granted bylaw variances.</p> </div><div class="ExternalClass452F7AFAF701463E8E06EC99D4BBC650"><p>A Community Liaison has been assigned to meet with business owners, residents, and community members to discuss the project impacts, compile public feedback, and be available to address any questions or concerns.
