Upgrade to Cannell Lake Water Treatment

The Cannell Lake water treatment station on Cannell Lake Road is being upgraded to add ultraviolet disinfection and to replace the aging chlorine disinfection equipment.

A new building will be constructed to include the new UV and chlorination equipment. BC Hydro will be installing a new 3-phase power supply to the site.

Construction is expected to begin in January 2016 and be complete by the end of 2016 or early 2017.  Steelhead residents may notice increased traffic along Ainsworth Street during this period.

This is a joint Abbotsford Mission Water & Sewer Commission project and will benefit water customers in both Abbotsford and Mission.
