Central Park Water MainCentral Park Water Main<div class="ExternalClassD281B5DE80F946D9BF1DD384297AF6EA"><p>Metro Vancouver is planning to replace the existing aged Central Park Water Main with a new water main, which will be constructed from Maywood Street at Patterson Avenue and will extend east for seven kilometres in the City of Burnaby. The existing water main was built in the 1930s and has reached the end of its service life. Construction of this new main has been phased over several years due to its length and will be constructed in three sections along the route. </p><p>The first section, known as the Maywood Section, will start at Patterson Avenue and end at the intersection of Telford Avenue and Maywood Street. This section is approximately 500 metres long and construction will take place from fall 2019 to summer 2020. An update on schedule and activities for the remaining sections will follow once information becomes available. </p> <p>When the entire Central Park Water Main is complete in 2023, the new main will help ensure the continued delivery of clean, safe drinking water to the City of Burnaby and other parts of the region well into the future. </p></div>City of Burnaby
