May 2018

This project is to complete a detailed design to upgrade the Zone 3N Reservoir in order service the Wedderburn, North D'Arcy and future north lands; to accept water and control water from a future regional potable water pipeline and replace aging electrical pumps and controls.  The project scope also includes expansion of the existing pump house building; installation of Zone 4N pumps; replacement of Zone 3N pumps and installation of transfer pumps to allow for transfer to Zone 2 reservoir.

This project is required to allow for development of Wedderburn and D'Arcy north of Bannister Gate, by providing water to a new pressure zone. It will also allow water to be received from a regional pipeline and replace assets that are due for life cycle replacement. Updated controls and pumps will also result in energy savings.
