Overview

The approximately 110 sq m Glenmore Booster Station project involved the construction of a new interconnected facility that supplies water from Beaver Lake water and Okanagan Lake. The station acts as a normal pressure regulating station, supplying two downstream pressure zones. It gives District of Lake Country utility operations more options and greater capacity to deliver a higher quality water to customers, with greater reliability.

The design of this station also included consideration of the limitations of the Okanagan Lake pumping station and reservoir, and minimized confined space requirements. The functional design includes a concrete wall with circular openings that allow the public to look into the building to see the water booster equipment, while the roof design reflects the water connections with different sizes of culverts.
