Reservoir expansion for West Abbotsford residents
The reservoir expansion was constructed adjacent to the existing reservoirs, which had a combined storage capacity of 14ML.
Westpro Constructors Group Ltd was the contractor for the new 14.4 ML reinforced concrete reservoir. Opus DaytonKnight produced a design for the reservoir that would enable it to be expanded from 14.4 ML to 56 ML in a phased program.
We welcomed public participation and a landscape architect on the project ensured an acceptable aesthetically pleasing outcome. Almost 1,500 trees of varying species were planted, and disturbed areas were hydroseeded.
The project included an upgrade for the existing SCADA and control system. The reservoir was commissioned in April 2006 and operates in parallel with the existing reservoirs.
