Operations maintained during major reconstruction of Hamilton’s waterworks
by Kirk Worounig, P. Eng., R.V. Anderson Associates Limited and Bill Docherty, City of Hamilton
The restoration of the City of Hamilton’s Woodward Water Treatment Plant included the high-lift pumping station, filter building and nine smaller ancillary buildings, totaling 5,800 m2. The Woodward plant is Hamilton’s main source of drinking water, and could not be taken offline during construction. Complex sequencing was required to keep the plant operational to meet seasonal City water demands, while allowing construction to proceed in a timely manner.
