Metro Vancouver’s Annacis Island Wastewater Treatment Plant services over 1 million residents in 14 municipalities. Wastewater from the Annacis Island Wastewater Treatment Plant is treated and released into the Fraser River through an outfall pipe, and construction of a new outfall system is underway to meet the needs of Metro Vancouver’s growing population and to strengthen its ability to operate in the event of an earthquake. This technically complex project includes two sections of bored tunnel, two on-land shafts, and a marine diffuser in the Fraser River. This presentation will give an overview of the project, provide information about the unique tunnelling aspects of the project, and discuss the challenges that have been encountered so far during construction.
