When this Stage 5 project by Metro Vancouver is complete, the Annacis Island facility will serve 1.5 million people in 14 Metro Vancouver municipalities. Today, it serves 1.25 million people. The previous expansion, Stage 4, was done in the late 1990s. The plant serves much of the Tri-Cities, Burnaby, Maple Ridge, Delta, Surrey, Pitt Meadows, Langley, and White Rock.
The $184 million contract for the outfall pipeline was awarded in September. The outfall pipe will be excavated using a tunnel boring machine.
Construction is scheduled for completion in 2022.
