Project Description

FortisBC upgraded their existing natural gas system in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia through the Lower Mainland Intermediate Pressure System Upgrade (LMIPSU) project. The LMIPSU project was a replacement of approximately 20 km of existing intermediate pressure gas line that reached the end of its service life, with a new 30 inch gas line. The new line runs from FortisBC’s Coquitlam Station in Coquitlam, through Burnaby, to FortisBC’s Woodland Station in Vancouver. Due to this project, there were several storm and sanitary mains in the City of Vancouver that required CCTV video inspection for pre and post-construction condition assessments.
