Stanley Park water supply tunnel

Metro Vancouver is planning to construct a major water infrastructure project, called the Stanley Park Water Supply Tunnel, deep under Stanley Park. The new water supply tunnel will replace an existing water main that was built in the 1930s and is at the end of its service life.

The project is in the detailed design stage and construction is expected to begin in late 2024 through 2029.

When complete, the new tunnel will meet current seismic standards, help ensure the continued reliable delivery of clean, safe drinking water to the cities of Vancouver and Richmond, and increase the capacity of the existing system for the region’s growing population.
