Canada: Burnaby Lake Dredging Project Wins Award

According to Burnabynow, the Association of Consulting Engineers of B.C. announced Wednesday that the City of Burnaby and its consultant, Associated Engineering, have won an award of merit in the municipal category for its Burnaby Lake dredging project.

In the notation about the award, the association stated: “the success of this complex project resulted from creative and innovative engineering, with a focus on sustainability and environmental protection.

The lake now has a deeper water column that encourages oxygenation, clears the path for spawning salmon, nurtures 400 native species and has enabled rowers to return to the lake.”

This project was lauded for its “new and unique application of ground penetrating radar and sonar camera,” which allowed engineers to detect and protect the red-listed Western Painted Turtle.
