East Bayfront


The East Bayfront Redevelopment project for Waterfront Toronto involves servicing the 22 hectare site situated between Lakeshore Boulevard and Lake Ontario at Jarvis Street to Parliament Street. Eventually East Bayfront will contain 7000 residential units, employment for 8000 people, 1,000,000 square feet of commercial space along with a large central park. Notable features include Sherbourne Park, Sugar Beach, and a stormwater management system integrated with the water’s edge promenade and boardwalk.


For Waterfront Toronto, The Municipal Infrastructure Group Ltd. is providing full engineering services including the functional design, preliminary design, detailed design, and contract administration of the proposed roads, watermains, sanitary sewers, storm sewers, storm water management measures, and utility conduits within the above noted East Bayfront site. Design services include 1.5km of external sanitary sewers through the busy downtown streets from East Bayfront to the Scott Street PS.


The overall project team includes several consulting firms specializing in various aspects of the East Bayfront Development. A key component to the project is that all design work must also demonstrate a high level of sustainable practice with respect to balancing environmental, social and economic considerations. The submersible pumping station has been designed to accommodate a divided wet well.  Each divided cell within the wet well will be equipped with a submersible pump, complete with associated discharge piping and valving.  Upstream, all discharge piping connects to a common discharge header located within the pumping station’s basement structure.  The basement also contains the remainder of the process equipment, including the UV units.   The UV system consists of two units, each of which can operate at a flow rate of 70 L/s (providing 100% standby capacity for the design flow rate of 70 L/s), with spatial allowance to permit the future expansion of the UV system treatment capacity to 140 L/s (c/w 50% standby capacity) complete with flow and turbidity monitoring.  In both cases, the UV system has been designed with standby capacity in the event one of the duty UV units is unavailable for service.
