Water System Improvements

The City is undertaking water system improvements to the north east region of Maple Ridge over the next two years. These improvements and upgrades to water reservoirs and water pump stations will build in system redundancy, provide additional fire storage and respond to growth and new developments that the City is experiencing. The projects are as follows:

225 Street Pump Station Upgrades and Forcemain

- The 225 Street Sewage Pump Station is located at the intersection of 225 Street and the Haney Bypass and it conveys sewage via the existing South Slope Forcemain west along River Road to Steeves Street where it discharges into a Greater Vancouver Sewerage and Drainage District trunk sewer. To meet the long-term needs of the City, both the pump station and forcemain need to be upgraded to reliably convey increasing sewer flows.

The City has retained Associated Engineering (B.C.) Ltd. to prepare the preliminary and detailed designs, prepare tender documents and provide construction services for the project.

The existing forcemain conveys sewage from the pump station along River Road from 225 Street to Steeves Street. The existing forcemain is located within the Fraser River Escarpment and the intent is to re-route the new south slope forcemain north of the existing escarpment setback areas and Haney slide. View proposed forcemain alignment (PDF)

The first phase (from the pump station to Cliff Avenue and Lougheed Highway) will be constructed as part of the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MoTI) reconstruction of the Haney Bypass Project which is currently underway. 

The second phase consists of upgrades to the pump station at 11555 225 Street, including replacement of all four pumps, electrical upgrades to the Motor Control Centre (MCC), new pipe work within the pump station and upgrades to the floors of the wet wells to better direct flows and increase mixing. The design is complete and the project is out for tender with construction commencing in late spring/early summer. The remaining forcemain work from Cliff Avenue to Steeves Street is planned for 2020/2021.

236 Street Water Pump Station Replacement

 - The City is planning to replace the existing 236 Street water pump station at 13215 236 Street, which is the property just north of the existing site. The City has retained Stantec Consulting Ltd. to prepare the preliminary and detailed design drawings, the  tender documents and provide construction support services for the project. Construction is anticipated to commence in fall 2020.

263 Street Pump Station Replacement

– The City replaced 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 5-10 years to replace the existing concrete reservoir and add additional storage capacity. The project is substantially complete with minor deficiencies remaining and the pump station is fully online and operational.
