Departure Bay Forcemain Upgrade

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Departure Bay Forcemain conveys wastewater from the Departure Bay Pump Station on Departure Bay Road to the Greater Nanaimo Pollution Control Centre on Hammond Bay Road. A section near Meadow Lane Road and Planta Road is corroded and must be replaced. Construction is scheduled for summer 2021 during the most reliable period of dry weather. A monitoring and mitigation program is now in place to manage the risks associated with higher flows.
