The first phase of construction is expected to start late 2018 and last for approximately two years. Phase 1 of the project will include:
- An above-ground reservoir
- One above-ground valve chamber and three underground valve chambers
- Piping that will connect to the existing water mains in the area
Phase 2 of the project is expected to take place in approximately 2040.
The reservoir project will be designed to enhance the existing site with landscaped areas and interpretive space. As part of the plans, the Township of Langley and Metro Vancouver are working together to develop the proposed Smith View Park on the same property.
