City of Burnaby offering grant of up to $2,500 for sewer separation

Last updated: July 27, 2021

Did you know Burnaby homeowners can qualify for a grant from the City of Burnaby of up to $2,500 to upgrade their sewer connection? We are encouraging residents to help us protect the environment while increasing sewer system efficiency.

For more than 30 years, Burnaby has been upgrading neighbourhood sewer systems so that lines carrying wastewater are separated from those carrying rainwater. Without this separation, overflows of untreated wastewater can drain into the Fraser River or Burrard Inlet during heavy rains. 

Burnaby is nearing its goal of separating all city sewer lines, but for the system to work best, we need homeowners to separate their property connections. Because of the environmental benefits separation provides, the City is offering eligible homeowners a grant to offset the cost of upgrade work.

If you’re already doing work on your property in 2020, it may make sense to take advantage of this grant.

For more information about this opportunity, contact 604-294-7460 or [email protected].
