Capilano Water Main Project



Capilano Water Main ProjectCapilano Water Main Project<div class="ExternalClass138B5203D5CA4AF79CCE867D21212F50"><p>To ensure the safe and reliable delivery of clean drinking water across the region, Metro Vancouver, has been undertaking a major regional infrastructure project called the Capilano Water Main Project. This project involves replacing an aging water main, installing new valve chambers, and connecting the new main to the existing system. </p><p>In the summer of 2016, crews completed the construction of the new 2-metre diameter water main, which was installed along Capilano Road, between Cleveland Dam Road and Edgemont Boulevard in the District of North Vancouver. It is now delivering drinking water to residents and businesses on the North Shore and across the region. </p><p>The remaining component of this project is the construction of the Edgemont Valve Chamber on Edgemont Boulevard, immediately east of Capilano Road. The valve chamber will house underground pipe connections that will control the flow of water through the mains in the area. </p></div>Capilano Road, District of North Vancouver
