Sanitary Sewer

UBC owns and maintains the sanitary sewage collection system on campus. We collect and discharge our sewage from two connection points to the Metro Vancouver sewer system.

  • North Campus sewage flows are discharged at the Northwest Marine Drive/Chancellor Boulevard and Wesbrook Mall/Chancellor Boulevard intersections.
  • South Campus sewage flows are discharged at the southern tip of campus at Southwest Marine Drive.

The majority of campus sewage drains directly by gravity to the connection points. There are a few localized segments on campus that are pumped into the gravity network. Our campus sanitary drainage and storm drainage systems are completely separated from one another.
