1 Metro Vancouver’s Seymour Capilano Filtration Project
Howard Dallimore Senior Project Engineer Metro Vancouver

2 The largest filtration plant in Canada and one of the biggest of its kind in North America.
Treats water from two watersheds and includes a 16,000 HP pumping station, twin tunnels each 7.1 km long and a 2 MW energy recovery facility. Spent filter backwash water is treated and over 98% is recycled to the head of the plant. The world’s largest ultraviolet disinfection system.

3 Includes a series of features to maximize energy efficiency.
Extensive use of sustainable and environmental technologies used in its design and construction. The plant is fully automated and integrated with Metro Vancouver’s SCADA system.
