The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) is inviting qualified engineering consultants (Proponents) to provide proposals for the assessment and design of the South Whistler Water Supply Project. This project will assess current conditions of infrastructure, design and implement infrastructure upgrades, and inform the long-term corrosion control treatment of Whistler’s water supply. The project is expected to include:
o Review of existing reports and data to compile a South Whistler Water Supply capacity report and demand projection.
o Recommendations on the feasibility and impact of connecting supply between the Cheakamus Crossing and Function Junction water systems to ensure that the RMOW can meet the long-term water demand in south Whistler.
o Recommendations and design of infrastructure upgrades that will include corrosion control requirements and possible manganese and iron removal.
o Cost estimates for each level of design.
The RMOW will continue providing reliable and sustainable potable water for its residents and visitors. This project aims to determine the best solution for upgrading the current water supply in south Whistler, while meeting the future demand for housing, development and water conservation and quality goals in the Function Junction and Cheakamus Crossing neighbourhoods.
