Water Service & Backflow Prevention Upgrades for Parks & Open Spaces

Water services for many parks and open spaces pose a potential risk for contamination of the drinking water system due to the lack of backflow prevention devices and/or the improper installation of devices. The City’s Backflow Prevention By-law 2010-102 (as amended) requires the City to upgrade parks and open spaces water service connections to comply with this municipal standard and ensure the protection of the municipal drinking water system from potential contamination.

Additionally, over 90% of all parks and open spaces water services are unmetered resulting in a large quantity of water that is unaccounted for. This lack of metering significantly impacts the ability to accurately calculate water loss values and subsequently the leakage index for the water distribution system.

The work consists of the excavation and installation of pit setters, water services and associated grading and restoration works at various park locations, as well as decommissioning non-active water services at various parks and open spaces, as listed:

  • Allandale Heights
  • Bayclub Gore
  • Browning Trail Wooded Area
