Work is now beginning on a major piece of stormwater infrastructure linking the British Properties to the ocean, but some West Vancouverites are staging a pipeline protest of a different sort.

British Pacific Properties and the District of West Vancouver are planning to build a five-foot diameter pipe from the Upper Levels Highway down Westmount Road to the foot of 31st Street via Thompson Crescent and Mathers Avenue. The Five Creeks Diversion Project is designed to handle the excess flows from Pipe, Westmount, Cave, Turner, and Godman creeks on the slopes of Hollyburn Mountain. – (North Shore News)
