South Slope Forcemain Upgrades

The City plans to replace the existing south slope forcemain, which is nearing the end of its service life. This investment will support increased density and future growth in the city.

The existing forcemain is located within the Fraser River Escarpment area. The project will re-route the forcemain to the north of the existing escarpment area and Haney slide.
