    In a combined sewer system, stormwater runoff is combined in a single pipe with wastewater from homes, businesses, and industry. During drier weather, the stormwater and wastewater are carried to the sewage treatment plant together. But in heavy rain, high volumes of stormwater can exceed the capacity of a combined sewer system. The excess, untreated amounts overflow and empty directly into our waterways. However, with sewer separation, rainwater and sewage are handled independently which helps limit environmental impacts.

    We will endeavor to minimize disruption as much as possible. However, as with a project of this nature, some disruption is inevitable.

    If you have any questions please contact the City’s Project Manager, Amir Aminpour at or 604 515 3796.
