Isn’t this a twinning of the existing pipe?

Not quite - the new 24” pipe starts from well North of the Coquitlam Lake watershed. It proposes to add a 24” diameter pipe alongside the existing 10”/12” one that runs from Eagle Mountain compressor station through Squamish and onward to Vancouver Island.  That one was put there in the late ‘80s. It was very controversial then, because it threatened Metro Vancouver’s water supply.
