Background

Council Motion 09-G-262 adopted the Sunnidale Park Master Plan in principle which thus determined the site location of the Sunnidale Reservoir and Booster Pumping Station within the Park.

In June 2009, Council Motion 09-G-315 directed staff to issue the Municipal class Environmental Assessment (EA) Notice of Completion which identified the need for a Reservoir and Booster Pumping Station and also confirmed that Sunnidale Park is the preferred area. In addition, staff were to report back to General Committee with the preliminary design for endorsement. The Notice of Completion was issued July 23, 2009.

Council issued their endorsement for the preliminary design under Motion 11-G-008 with minor changes to the design (see Downloads). Council also directed staff to provide a Memorandum to General Committee outlining any changes to the design.

This station and reservoir will enhance the water distribution system security and public safety to meet the City's needs beyond its current limited capacity.
