Chapman Lake Supply Expansion Project
The overarching goal of the project is to increase access to five additional metres of water in Chapman Lake, totaling roughly 1 million additional cubic metres, in order to provide additional water supply capacity to support municipal supply, environmental flows, and fire protection during periods of drought. Increasing access to additional water at Chapman Lake is part of the Comprehensive Regional Water Plan. The design concept going forward is based on lowering the Chapman Lake discharge channel to allow the regulation of gravity flow from the Lake to Chapman Creek.
The SCRD approved the award of an engineering services contract to AECOM for the design, regulatory approvals, and construction management of the Chapman Lake Water Supply Expansion Project.
A team from AECOM made a presentation at the June 9, 2016 Infrastructure Services Committee Meeting. The presentation includes a project overview, design concept and timelines.
Chapman Lake is located in the Tetrahedron Provincial Park. BC Park's Management Plan for the park can be viewed here.
