Project status

Permit under review

In October 2020, the City of Maple Ridge (the Applicant) submitted a project permit application to upgrade the stormwater infrastructure on the north side of the Fraser River (right bank looking downstream) at the corner of Princess Street and Wharf Street, on waters managed by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority.

As part of the Project and Environmental Review for the proposed project under the Impact Assessment Act, the proposed project was posted on the Canadian Impact Assessment Registry with an opportunity for public comment between November 2 and December 1, 2020.

About the project

The City of Maple Ridge (the City) is proposing to upgrade the stormwater infrastructure around Princess Street. As part of these upgrades, the City will upgrade the Princess Street Pump Station and the associated discharge infrastructure. The Proponent is proposing to clear approximately 150 square meters of riparian habitat using an excavator. A sheet-pile coffer dam will be installed and, if required, a Qualified Environmental Professional will complete a fish salvage. An excavator will be used to remove the damaged pipe, and a new concrete pipe will be installed. Rip-rap will then be installed along the foreshore. Disturbed areas will be restored with plantings of grass and native shrubs.
