The Alloa Reservoir and Pumping Station is located north of Mayfield Road and west of Creditview Road in the Town of Caledon. The Alloa facility will be the final reservoir and pumping station on the western transmission system, fed by the Lorne Park Water Treatment Plant, and is needed to meet imminent municipal water demands for development growth in the City of Brampton, Northwest Development Area.
The Region of Peel retained Burnside for the planning, detailed design and contract administration of the Alloa Reservoir and Pumping Station project.
This facility was designed to provide an ultimate capacity of 165 ML/d. The project includes the design and construction of a 35ML, two celled reservoir with design provisions for a future expansion of the reservoir storage to 70ML; a pumping station servicing Peel Zone 6W and Zone 7W; electrical supply included twinned 750kVA transformers, 5kV switchgear, 4160V feeds to pump starters and 4160V-600/347V transformers to feed 600V MCC; 2000 kW diesel generator; provision for top-up chlorination; and a dedicated administration area with a boardroom and offices.
The exterior appearance of the facility was designed to blend in with future area development by using a park-like pavilion for inspiration (as identified during the Class Environmental Assessment process).
Engineering projects of all shapes and sizes.
