Metro Vancouver Watermain Replacement
Metro Vancouver is planning to replace the watermain along 53 Street/Arthur Drive between 28 Avenue and 34B Avenue and along 28 Avenue between 52 Street and 53 Street/Arthur Drive. This project will improve reliability of the water supply to the Tsawwassen area, including Tsawwassen First Nation (TFN) lands, and increase capacity to satisfy future demands.
Update: Metro Vancouver will be beginning watermain construction along 28 Avenue between 52 Street and 53 Street in October 2018.
