Surrey Infrastructure Upgrades

Posted: Updated:

The City Council of Surrey will host a meeting tonight at seven to discuss infrastructure upgrades to the towns water mains, pump station and water storage.

The state water commission has supplied one and a half million dollars for the project through a grant, but that offer will expire in 20-15.

Surrey's city engineer says that the renovations need to be made for fire flow safety reasons.

Also-- the improvements should to be made in the next three to five years anyway.

The grant would simply save the town money, and help provide resources to the growing community.

(Antonio Conti, City Engineer) "The pump station is about thirty-years old, so it is at the end of the useful life. So it's time to rebuild it, upgrade it, new softening system. And, with this matching grant the city's in a great position, where their not going to tax the citizen an enormous amount of money, that would happen if they didn't have this matching grant.

He says the remaining cost will be passed to the citizens Surrey.

Each resident would pay about two-hundred dollars over the next ten years until the city reaches its one point sixty-five million total.
