Stewart Farm Sanitary Pump Station

Project Description

We will upgrade the sanitary pump station located near Stewart Farm to protect it from future flooding.

What will the Project Achieve?

This station is part of the City of Surrey’s sanitary sewer system to collect wastewater from the community and carry it to the Annacis Island Wastewater Treatment Plan.

This station is located at low elevation on the south bank of the Nicomekl River. This lower part of the river is impacted by tides which makes the station more vulnerable to flooding. We need to raise the station to avoid any damage to the infrastructure or the environment, while keeping it functioning in the case of a severe flood.                                                                                                                                       

This project is part of the first phase of implementation of Surrey's Coastal Flood Adaptation Strategy (CFAS). CFAS guides our work in ensuring our community is resilient, safe, healthy and prepared for coastal flooding and sea level rise. We’re putting CFAS planning into action.

Project Timing

Construction will begin Spring 2020. Project is anticipated to be completed by Winter 2020.
