City of Delta Stormwater Outfall

The Proposed Project

The City of Delta proposes to install a new stormwater outfall at 8600 River Road, Delta. The outfall will capture runoff from a 15 hectare catchment allowing for redevelopment of a former landfillll site into a new industrial complex. The proposed industrial development is located outside lands managed by the port authority. The City of Delta also proposes to remove woody debris in two nearby areas of marsh as habitat offsetting in support of a Fisheries Act Authorization for the project.

The project consists of installing a manhole at the road edge, a pipe below an intertidal marsh, a headwall at the edge of the marsh, and a rip rap lined channel leading to a channel cut into the mudflat. The marsh area that will be excavated during pipe installation will be reinstated upon completion. The outfall will discharge stormwater runoff largely from roofs and paved areas to the Fraser River. One of two existing pipes located beneath River Road will be reused, with the second being removed. River Road is located outside lands managed by the port authority. Some construction activities may be conducted outside of regular construction hours to accommodate low tides.
