The development of the sewer system was largely driven by health concerns. Early wooden sewers built in the late 1880s discharged to local beaches, resulting in typhoid fever, cholera, and other waterborne diseases. In 1911, local leaders sought a regional solution to the growing sewage problem, and hired prominent sanitary engineer R.S. Lea to design a sewerage and drainage system. On March 4, 1914, members of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia authorized the incorporation of the Vancouver and Districts Joint Sewerage and Drainage Board. The Board oversaw the financing, construction and operations of new sewers for the City of Vancouver and municipalities of Burnaby, Point Grey and South Vancouver. Today, 17 municipalities and one electoral area are members of the Greater Vancouver Sewerage and Drainage District Board, one of the four legal entities commonly known as Metro Vancouver.
