R.V. Anderson Associates Limited acted as the design consultant for the design/build construction of a new intake required to transport 240 ML/d of water from Lake Ontario to the new Burloak Water Purification Plant. The intake consists of a lakebed pipeline that links to a tunnel that runs to the pumping station at the plant. The tunnel runs from the WPP site southward to a vertical riser shaft 300m south of the Lake Ontario shoreline. A concrete pressure pipe pipeline, trenched into the bed of the lake, runs from the riser shaft to an intake structure a further 1067m into the lake.
The project won the 2009 Project of the Year Award in the Environment category from the Ontario Public Works Association, and was also recognized as one of the three 2008 Project of the Year award winners at the Hamilton-Halton Engineering Week Awards Gala 2008.
