Arbutus Attenuation Tank: Overnight Pumping

image

Construction for the Arbutus Attenuation Tank will require temporary pumping to take place 24 hours a day for approximately two weeks. This work is expected to begin during the first week of February, however, it is weather dependent so the timing may change.

The Arbutus Attenuation Tank will be a 5,000m3 underground concrete tank that will temporarily store wastewater flows during high volume storm events to reduce the number of sewer overflows.
