The City of Guelph required updates to their efficiency programs in order to better meet the water use reduction targets of their 2006 Water Supply Master Plan. C3 Water, in conjunction with Gauley Associates and Freeman Associates, completed the following tasks:
C3W was retained by the City of Guelph for the conceptual design for a two-phase upgrade being completed at the F.M. Woods WTP.
The first phase of the project involves converting the original pump station facility (ca.1879), which was designated as a City Heritage property in 1997, into office space for technical services and conservation staff. The second phase of the project will see the construction of a replacement 1050 L/s pump station and wet well, replacement of the electrical power supply and distribution system, refurbishment of existing O&M facilities, construction of a new administration building and associated controls upgrades.

Gas chemical system safety reviews were completed by C3W in 2014 for the ozone, liquid oxygen, chlorine gas and ammonia gas systems at the Mannheim WTP. This led to the creation of a capital project to affect the recommended upgrades. C3W won a competitive bid in 2017 to provide design and construction support services to implement the capital project.

The City of Guelph (City) retained C3 Water Inc (C3W) to review the short and long-term pumping requirements for pressure Zone 2. The project utilized the City’s water model and included recommending short term and long term pumping capacities for Zone 2 to 2040.

As part of its ongoing efforts to reduce water losses in the water distribution system, and reduce the levels of Non-Revenue water, the consultant team was hired by the City of Cambridge to perform an International Water Association (IWA) Water Audit and Water Balance for 2016. This audit quantifies water and revenue loss through physical leaks and apparent losses, helping the team to identify steps to minimize and improve system efficiency. The audit results serve as the baseline data to help the City to measure progress over time and aid in establishing a cost effective Infrastructure Leak Index (ILI) target.

The City of Guelph water system operates with two pressure zones. A third zone is being developed and implemented. The elevated storage in the second pressure zone was taken out of service for rehabilitation and this pressure zone was converted to a closed pressure zone for the duration. Almost immediately, the City began to experience a number of significant water main breaks in a focused area of the pressure zone.

County is comprised of a number of communities ranging from the City of
Woodstock with a population of 38,000 to small rural villages. The County
operates the water and wastewater systems for each community including
treatment, pumping and distribution.

The City of Stratford retained C3
Water to develop a calibrated water distribution network model using InfoWater.
The City plans to use the model to evaluate future infrastructure as a part of
Master Plan projects, for operational planning, water quality analysis, and
development and redevelopment support.

The Terms of Reference for the Assessment of Groundwater
Systems Potentially Under the Influence of Surface Water (GUDI-TOR) and the
Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) Procedure for
Disinfection are in the process of being updated to address the federal
requirement for groundwater disinfection, which is now 4-log virus
inactivation. Detailed investigations
into the level of disinfection achieved at Region of Waterloo (Region) supply
wells, system wide, were carried out by C3 Water Inc. (C3W).

The Region of Waterloo (Region), Water Services Division,
hired C3 Water Inc. (C3W) to carry out a system wide review of the level of
disinfection achieved at their system supply wells. The scope of work included
identifying the impact of the proposed provincial well supply treatment
guidance changes on the Region’s well water supplies, given existing system
conditions and treatment infrastructure. Both the Terms of Reference for the
Assessment of Groundwater Systems Potentially Under the Influence of Surface
Water (GUDI-TOR) and the Procedure for Disinfection of Water Supplies in the
Province of Ontario (PFD) are currently in the process of being updated. It is
anticipated that these documents will echo the Canadian Federal Government’s
move from a minimum treatment level of 2-log virus inactivation to 4-log virus
inactivation for well supplies. Of this total required 4-log virus inactivation
for primary disinfection, at least 2-log virus inactivation much be achieved
through chlorine disinfection.
