Projects include a recently completed LEED Gold drinking water filtration plant—the world’s largest ultraviolet disinfection facility—along with twin tunnels linking the Seymour and Capilano watersheds, a new communications tower at the Seymour Falls Dam, a seismic upgrade to the Seymour Falls Dam, and a new watermain twinning the existing main linking the Seymour plant to Burrard Inlet.
