construction workers replace underground watermain

We're improving stormwater runoff and rising groundwater levels in Crescent Beach.

Project Description

We’re moving ahead on implementing the various phases of the Crescent Beach Utilities Improvements Strategy to manage the area’s fluctuating groundwater levels and service Crescent Beach’s long-term drainage needs.

Phase I and Phase II Improvements have been completed. We’re now implementing Phase III and in the planning stages for Phase IV. These improvements are also part of the first phase of implementation of Surrey’s Coastal Flood Adaptation Strategy to prepare our community for coastal flooding and sea level rise.

Phase III Improvements

The drainage works in Phase III involve the continued expansion of the storm sewer system together with ground and road raising. In addition to the drainage works, Phase III includes improvements to sections of the watermain and sanitary sewer.

Drainage improvements are planned on Sullivan Street, a section of Ohara Lane, Alexandra Lane, and a section of McBride Avenue. Works include:

  • New storm sewer system with appurtenances,
  • New storm service tie-ins to improve drainage on private properties,
  • Regrading and restoration of boulevard areas and driveways,
  • Sanitary sewer and Watermain improvements, and
  • Road and pavement work.

Phase IV Improvements

The drainage works in Phase IV involve the continued expansion of the storm sewer system together with ground and road raising. In addition to the drainage works, Phase IV includes upgrading the watermain on Beecher Street in Crescent Beach area.

Drainage improvements are planned in the area from South of Sullivan Street to Maple Street. Works include:

  • New storm sewer system with appurtenances,
  • New storm service tie-ins to improve drainage on private properties,
  • Regrading and restoration of boulevard areas and driveways,
  • Watermain improvements, and
  • Road and pavement work.

Phase IV Project Timing

Survey work will be done over August and September 2021. Once survey work is complete, we will begin the design work. The design work includes:

  • Determining the storm sewer alignment and location of appurtenances
  • Site grading plan and new road profiles
  • Geotechnical Investigation
  • Archaeological Investigation
  • Ground Penetrating Radar

Construction of the Phase IV area will be staged in multiple phases. The consultant will advise of the construction sequencing plan. The first phase of construction is planned for 2023.
