This project includes the twinning of the existing syphon to provide additional capacity to accommodate future growth and reduce operational concerns of the existing syphon. This project is required due to growth, thus it is funded 100% from off-site levy-funded debt.
The Cochrane West sanitary syphon is a major piece of infrastructure that conveys wastewater from all development west of Highway 22. It also includes Bow Meadows, Bow Ridge, Jumping Pound Ridge and flows from Cochrane Lakes. Recent flow testing indicates that the capacity of the syphon has been severely reduced since its implementation in the mid-90s. The configuration of a sanitary syphon makes for difficult access for cleaning and system maintenance purposes.
Total project budget: $5.1M
