Overview of Projects

Metro Vancouver is undertaking the Northwest Langley Wastewater Treatment Projects to continue to protect public health and the environment in a growing region.

The improvements are being done to:

  • Meet the needs of our growing population
  • Help prevent untreated wastewater back-ups and overflows
  • Strengthen the plant to ensure it will continue to operate in the event of an earthquake
  • Adapt to sea level rise from climate change
  • Reduce treatment plant water and energy use
  • Treat wastewater beyond the levels set by provincial and federal regulations using tertiary treatment methods

Learn about the Projects

The Northwest Langley Wastewater Treatment Plant, which currently serves 30,000 people in Langley, will be expanded on the same site to serve 230,000 people, including residents and businesses in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows across the Fraser River. Several other projects will support the treatment plant improvements.

Untreated wastewater from Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows currently flows to the Annacis Island Wastewater Treatment Plant. To divert the flows to Northwest Langley Wastewater Treatment Plant, a new pump station is required north of the Fraser River, along with two pipes under the Fraser connecting the pump station in Maple Ridge to the treatment plant. A new storage tank, sited with the pump station, will temporarily store wastewater to prevent overflows during storms.
