Water Treatment Plant

The City is committed to providing safe and clean water to its water users, adhering to mandates issued by Fraser Health, and meeting the requirements of Health Canada’s Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality. In 2017, the City was awarded nearly $12 million, in government grant funds, through the Clean Water and WasteWater Fund (CWWF) for the construction of a water treatment plant. The CWWF covers 83% of the total project costs for the City’s first ever water treatment plant.

To ensure the City implemented the right technologies to reach its water quality goals, in 2016, the City partnered with water quality research group, RES’EAU-WaterNET. RES’EAU-WaterNET created a custom fit mobile research lab that helped reflect the City’s specific water-related needs, which in turn helped identify the best technologies and solutions to address the naturally occurring arsenic and manganese in the City’s water. These technologies will be implemented in the water treatment plant, which is scheduled
to be completed in March of 2019.
