Construction Nears Completion

Environmental Services is near the end of a project to build a new sewage pump staion on NE Skidmore Street at 88th Avenue (see map on back) to replace an older pump station too small to meet current demands. The photos on the right show the older pump station built in 1998 and the new pump station.

This project is removing the old structure and has built a new pump station that covers about twice the area. These improvements will protect public health, property and our environment, and reduce the possibility of sewage releases into streets, homes and businesses.

Developments of NoteSite Map

Crew are in the process of completing construction at the site. Soon you will see the old structure removed, final quality control testing performed, and removal of materials and equipment from the site. Landscaping will be done a little later by crews from the Parks Bureau. Crews are currently on track to be off the site by the end of June.
