Sewer System & Wastewater Treatment Facilities

Vancouver Public Works maintains and repairs the city's extensive sewer collection system

Vancouver's effective and efficient wastewater collection system includes approximately 716 miles of total sewer lines and 41 pump stations. These pumping stations provide a means of moving wastewater from areas lacking gravity sewer lines to an adjacent area where gravity lines exist. The total size of our collection system expands each year due to growth.

As of mid 2011, the City of Vancouver sewer district served an estimated 192,000 residents across a 55.8 square mile area. Our two wastewater treatment facilities, which serve those customers well, have been recognized for their environmental excellence.
