False Creek Waters May Become Swimmable By Summer 2018
False Creek Waters May Become Swimmable By Summer 2018.
False Creek seems like a cool spot for a dip, but it’s not an option with the water pollution.
As a result, Vancouver Councillor Andrea Reimer is lobbying to make the waters swimmable by next year.
Reimer is putting forward a motion to implement a water revitalization initiative to establish healthy waterways.
The initiative will help purify waters at False Creek, Burrard Inlet, Lost Lagoon, the Fraser River and Trout Lake.
The motion comes nearly a year after a surf park was proposed for Creekside Park.
Polluted Waters Biological and toxic waste have polluted these waters of Vancouver in particular.
The goal is to make it safe for people and aquatic life to inhabit there throughout the year.

Vancouver utility will soon get thermal energy from wastewater
Vancouver utility will soon get thermal energy from wastewater.
The False Creek SHARC was announced in August 2016 following the successful collaboration between IWS and Metro Vancouver ("Metro Vancouver").
Metro Vancouver is a partnership of 21 municipalities, one Electoral Area and one Treaty First Nation that collaboratively plans for and delivers regional-scale services across the lower mainland of British Columbia.
The False Creek Neighborhood Energy Utility is a large-scale district heating network that began operations in 2010 and currently provides space heating and hot water for 4,300,000 square feet (395,000 m2) of residential, commercial, and institutional space.
IWS installed its newest and largest capacity system at False Creek, the model 880 ("SHARC 880").
The SHARC 880 offers the highest capacity of any SHARC system to date, with flow rates of up to 1500 gallons per minute, a capacity increase of three-times when compared to existing SHARC models.
The False Creek SHARC installation will include two SHARC 880 systems working in tandem and will initially operate over 12-month period to demonstrate the economic and energy efficiencies of the system.
This is the second time that a SHARC system has been integrated into a district heating network following IWS’s installation at Borders College (Scotland) in 2015.
IWS systems recycle thermal energy from wastewater, generating the most energy efficient and economical systems for heating, cooling & hot water for commercial, residential and industrial buildings.
IWS is publicly traded in Canada (CSE:IWS), the United States (OTC PINK:INTWF) and Germany (FRANKFURT:IWI).
