Sanitary Sewer

The City of Surrey works on building and maintaining an effective and reliable sanitary sewer system that services residents and businesses in our growing community. The City has one of the largest sanitary sewer systems in the province and connects to several large sanitary sewers that are owned and operated by Metro Vancouver. These pipes carry wastewater to the Annacis Island Wastewater Treatment Plant.
