148 Street Water Main – Whalley Section148 Street Water Main – Whalley Section<div class="ExternalClassFA67284865724EF0873D3E24A7865346"><p>​Metro Vancouver is building a new water main in the City of Surrey to continue delivering clean, safe drinking water to growing communities south of the Fraser River. The 148 Street Water Main is being constructed in two sections: the Port Mann Section and the Whalley Section. Construction of the Port Mann Section is now underway.</p><p>The Whalley Section will be constructed along 148 Street, from 105 Avenue to 95A Avenue. Work will last for approximately three months in summer 2019, and will continue for approximately three months in summer 2020. Construction will also include two underground valve chambers along the water main alignment. Work related to these valve chambers will take place between summer 2019 and summer 2020. Valve chambers house pipe connections, valves and other equipment used to manage water flow. They also make it easier for crews to conduct maintenance and repair work when required, without disrupting water service in the area.</p></div>City of Surrey

Project Update


  • UPCOMING VALVE CHAMBER CONSTRUCTION - posted on October 08, 2019

    S​tarting mid-October, construction will begin on a valve chamber located along 148 Street, south of 100 Avenue for approximately six months. Valve chambers contain pipe connections, valves and other equipment used to manage water flow. They also make it easier for crews to do maintenance and repair work when required, without disrupting water service in the area.

    Traffic along 148 Street will continue to flow in both directions around the work area. Please see the map for the exact location of the upcoming valve chamber construction and traffic changes along 148 Street.

    You may expect some noise from equipment such as excavators and generators during regular work hours, and all residents will continue to have access to their driveways and properties as usual during construction.
