Arbutus Mountain Estates

System Overview

The Arbutus Mountain Estates Water system and service area was built and established in 2008 to supply potable water and fire protection to a small single-family modular home subdivision. There are presently 123 single-family parcels on this water system..

Source and Treatment

Water from the system is supplied from two groundwater wells and is chlorinated and pumped by two heavy-duty pumps to a 200,000 litre steel-bolted, above-grade reservoir and is gravity fed on demand from the reservoir to the distribution system. A fire pump will start when the pressure transducer on the system supply pipe indicates a pressure less than 140 kPa.
