In winter, 27 kilometers of skiing trails are groomed for cross country skiers while skaters take to the lake and toboggans come flying down the hill.

How are we conserving water?

Water Recycling System
Water used by the Aquatic Playground elements is collected in drains located on the floor of the playground. It is then pumped back into the pump house where it is filtered through sand filters, sanitized by a UV system, and pumped by a 15hp circulation pump back through the system to be used again. Treated water passes through sensors which ensure water going to the spray features is clean. If the makeup of water passing through the sensors is not within the allowable limits, the system shuts down, thus ensuring the quality of water being used.

Waste Dispersal System

When the system is flushed for annual maintenance procedures, the waste water that is generated is pumped into a holding tank, where it is held and eventually sent through a dispersal system to irrigate soft landscaping in the area.

Energy and Water Efficiency
A system controller ensures that the Aquatic Playground features only use water when activated by a user pushing an activation button located in the playground. The features are pre-programmed to follow various sequences once activated. Washrooms and the pump house feature energy efficient light fixtures and low flow toilets and faucets. Visit www.watersmartpeel.ca to learn more about water-saving toilets and fixtures.
