The City is proceeding with the replacement of the 263 Street Water Pump Station at 26285 Dewdney Trunk Road. There is already an existing pump station and concrete water reservoir on the property with the new pump station being constructed to the south of the adjacent reservoir. The new pump station will be connected to the reservoir and the existing station decommissioned. The work generally consists of site clearing, minor water main installation, a new building to house the pump room, electrical room and the on-site chlorine generation system. The project will also include provisions to accommodate two new water reservoirs in the next 10-15 years to replace the existing concrete reservoir and add additional storage capacity.
The contract has been awarded to Drake Excavating Ltd. and construction commenced at the beginning of September 2017. Project completion is scheduled for summer 2018.
Traffic impacts will be minimal and should be limited to construction traffic/trucks turning off Dewdney Trunk Road. No work will take place on Dewdney Trunk and no road closures are expected.
