​Project Overview

To meet the growing demand for drinking water in the region, Metro Vancouver is constructing a new water main in the City of Coquitlam. This essential project is in the planning stage. It will involve installing a new water main, constructing underground valve chambers, and connecting the new main to the existing drinking water system.

The new water main will be located on a route through Coquitlam between the north end of Pipeline Road approximately one kilometre south of the Coquitlam watershed and Mariner Way at Riverview Crescent. The project is approximately 12 kilometres long.

To reduce disruptions, approximately two kilometres of the water main will be tunneled under the City of Coquitlam’s downtown core along Pipeline Road and Westwood Street between Guildford Way and Dewdney Trunk Road. The remaining portions are expected to be constructed in an open trench within an enclosed work site.

  Location: Coquitlam

  • Working with Communities to Minimize Construction Impacts

    Metro Vancouver is sensitive to the impacts construction will have on the local community and is taking steps to minimize them whenever possible. There will be a number of opportunities for public input throughout the project. Local residents and businesses will receive invitations to public meetings and ongoing communication through newsletters, web updates, email and on-site signage.
