Metro Vancouver’s drinking water comes from reservoirs in three watersheds – Capilano, Seymour and Coquitlam. The Seymour-Capilano Filtration Plant (SCFP) treats water from both the Seymour and Capilano sources. The plant is located in the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve, and is the largest water filtration plant in Canada. It began distributing water to the residents of Metro Vancouver in December 2009, and has the capacity to produce up to 1.8 billion liters per day. The primary objective of the filtration plant is the removal of particulates, organic matter and micro-organisms that are naturally present in the source water. This ensures a safe and high quality of drinking water that exceeds the Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality.
