We upgraded the sanitary pump station located near Stewart Farm to make it flood proof.

Stewart Farm Sanitary Pump Station

Project Description

The Stewart Farm sanitary pump 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. The pump station needed to be raised to avoid any damage to the infrastructure and 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 safe and prepared for coastal flooding and sea level rise. 

Project Timing

Construction began in spring 2020 and was completed in late spring 2021.
