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.

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 will consist 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. Final design revisions are being completed and the project tender is anticipated in early 2020 with construction commencing in the spring. The remaining forcemain work from Cliff Avenue to Steeves Street is planned for 2020/2021.
