To continue delivering clean, safe drinking water to a growing region, Metro Vancouver is constructing a number of drinking water infrastructure projects in the City of Coquitlam over the next two decades. The projects are:
The proposed project includes new water facilities: an intake from Coquitlam Lake, a water supply tunnel, and water treatment facilities. This project is in the early planning stage.
This project will involve installing a new water main and underground valve chambers, and connecting the new water main to the existing water supply system. This project will be constructed in sections beginning in early 2022.
The Coquitlam Intake Tower is a structure that draws water from Coquitlam Lake, in the Coquitlam Watershed. The tower is 27 metres tall and was constructed in 1913. Metro Vancouver will be upgrading the tower to ensure it can withstand an earthquake.
This project includes a new pump station in the Hickey Street Reservoir Park in Coquitlam. It is in the early planning stages.
This work will involve the repair and restoration of Pipeline Road about 0.5 kilometres south of the Coquitlam Water Treatment Plant. Construction is expected to begin early in 2021 and continue until summer 2021.
Metro Vancouver will work closely with First Nations, local governments, businesses, community organizations and
the public to ensure each project considers their values, interests, and priorities. As planning for each project continues, Metro Vancouver will reach out to residents, businesses, and community organizations to share information and seek input.

Metro Vancouver acknowledges that the region’s residents live, work, and learn on the shared territories of many Indigenous peoples, including 10 local First Nations: Katzie, Kwantlen, Kwikwetlem, Matsqui, Musqueam, Qayqayt, Semiahmoo, Squamish, Tsawwassen, and Tsleil-Waututh.
Metro Vancouver respects the diverse and distinct histories, languages, and cultures of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit, which collectively enrich our lives and the region.
