2012 Annual Report
INTRODUCTION
All Peterborough Utilities Commission
facilities are managed and operated
under contract by Peterborough Utilities
Services Inc. (PUSI). The Water Utility
section of PUSI includes the following
operating departments:
a)
b)
c)
Water Treatment Plant
Water Distribution
Riverview Park and Zoo
The Water Utility has maintained a high
safety standard and has worked over
78,000 hours in 2012 with no lost time
accidents.
Water metering of new residential homes
continued in 2012 with a total of just under
20,000 meters installed since 2010. The
project will see the meters automatically
read, with the data transmitted using the
electric meter communication backbone.
Water rates will have to be established for
the new meters and billing will likely start
in 2014.
PUSI staff continued to contribute to the
work on Source Protection through the
conservation authorities and the Trent
Conservation Coalition Source Protection
Committee. The Committee submitted the
Draft Source Protection Plan to the
Ministry of the Environment in August
according to the requirements of the
Clean Water Act.
P a g e |2
Implementation of the Cross Connection
Control Program (CCCP) continued in
2012. Notices to have Cross Connection
Surveys completed, to install backflow
devices, annual testing of existing
devices and notice of corrective
measures required to comply with the
program were sent out throughout 2012.
This has resulted in 69 facilities
becoming compliant with the CCCP in
2012. The total number of compliant
facilities since 2008 is 1,542. Statistics
for 2012 include 162 new devices
installed and tested and 7 existing
devices tested and repaired. The total
number of devices installed in the City is
2,941.
An additional 25 water meters were
installed in existing commercial
applications that were previously
unmetered. This brings the total water
meter installation count in commercial
properties that had no water meter to
396 since 2008.
The Peterborough Drinking Water
System received the new Municipal
Drinking Water Licence and Permit. This
new licencing program replaced the
certificates of approval program for
municipal residential drinking water
systems.
The following are the 2012 Water Utility
Highlights.
2012 Annual Report
WATER TREATMENT
Water Treatment Plant Operations
During 2012 the Water Treatment Plant
(WTP) continued upgrades to the SCADA
(Supervisory
Control
And
Data
Acquisition) system. New communication
software was installed in all pumping
stations, reservoirs, and elevated tanks.
Upon completion, the system will be
faster, more reliable, and able to transfer
larger amounts of data.
Reservoirs, Elevated Tanks, Water
Booster Pumping Stations
A major overhaul was carried out on a
pump at the Clonsilla Reservoir; there
were also repairs to lintels and parapets
on the pumphouse building and ongoing
improvements to generator #3 turbine
during 2012. SCADA upgrades and
improvements were also carried out at the
pumphouse, distribution pumping stations
and reservoirs.
Water Consumption
Total water consumption in 2012 was
11,200.83 megalitres (ML), this is an
average of 30.57 ML daily. Historically the
highest water consumption was recorded
in 1980 (18,621.20 ML). The maximum
daily consumption of 54.12 ML, on July
18th, was 8.09 ML lower than the 2011
maximum daily value (62.21ML) on
July16th.
P a g e |3
The WMO (World Meteorological
Organization) has declared 2012 as the
ninth warmest year since record keeping
began in 1850. The period from January
to March had over 21 days with higher
than daily maximum temperature. This
was also a period with very low
precipitation. June had the highest
number of precipitation events, and this
translated
into
low
pumpage
requirements.
Water Quality
No known health-related water quality
guidelines for organic and inorganic
parameters were exceeded in 2012 in
Peterborough’s drinking water. In order to
assure that Peterborough’s water is safe
to drink, water quality is carefully
monitored and subject to constant
surveillance.
In addition to continuous monitoring of
turbidity, chlorine, fluoride and pH levels at
the Water Treatment Plant, thousands of
water samples are taken each year for
chemical, physical and microbiological
tests. These tests are carried out on
water samples before and after treatment
as well as on samples collected from
different points in the water distribution
system.
A total of approximately 20,000 individual
tests were performed on water treatment
plant and water distribution samples in
2012. Approximately 13,000 individual
tests were performed in the Water
Treatment
Plant
Laboratory
and
approximately 6,000 microbiological and
chemical tests were performed by
Peterborough Environmental Protection
Laboratory and SGS Lakefield Research
Limited.
2012 Annual Report
Results of the laboratory testing continue
to confirm that the Peterborough Water
Treatment Plant produces good quality
water and this quality is maintained
throughout the water distribution system to
the customer’s tap.
Provincial Drinking Water Quality
Standards
O. Reg. 169/03 contains the Ontario
Drinking Water Quality Standards
(ODWQS). All reference to aesthetic
parameters has been removed from the
regulation.
Aesthetic objectives are
outlined in a Ministry Technical Support
Document. The purpose of the Province’s
ODWQS is to establish parameter limits to
protect public health. The Standard
consists of three tables, namely:
1.
2.
3.
Microbiological Standards
Chemical Standards
Radiological Standards
P a g e |4
Chemical standards in the ODWQS
value has been derived from the best
scientific information currently available
and represents the level (a concentration
or a number) of a constituent that
ensures an aesthetically pleasing water
and does not result in any significant risk
to the health of the consumer over a
lifetime. The ODWQS values describe a
quality of water that is acceptable for
lifelong consumption; therefore, shortterm deviations above the Standard’s
values do not necessarily mean that the
water is unsuitable for consumption.
Exceedence of any parameter would
result in an adverse water quality event
with notification to the Medical Officer of
Health and the MOE.
Appropriate
corrective action would have to be
initiated to address the adverse incident.

2012 Annual Report
RIVERVIEW PARK AND ZOO
In 2012 Riverview Park & Zoo (RP&Z) was
open to the public during daylight hours
from January 1st to December 31st
Admission and parking were provided free
of charge. The zoo perimeter gates were
routinely opened each day at 8:30 am and
closed and locked daily at dusk. The
annual attendance is believed to be
similar to the previous year, estimated at
over 300,000 visitors. As a result of
record high air temperatures, the Park and
Zoo experienced very high visitor
attendance throughout the school March
break period. The main visitor parking lot
was filled to capacity on several
afternoons,
making
washroom
maintenance
and
waste
removal
challenging for our March level of staffing.
A visitor survey was completed in August
to evaluate the public’s level of
satisfaction with the Park and Zoo
facilities and operations. Visitors rated
their satisfaction of 10 key areas. The
survey overall average level of satisfaction
was calculated to be 88%. Riverview
Park and Zoo received a certificate of
excellence from TripAdvisor for achieving
a high guest rating for the year of 2012.
To improve 911 emergency response to
the various Park and Zoo areas, staff
installed emergency address signs at
each of the 5 access points on Water
Street.
The Park and Zoo took possession of the
new Zoo Animal Healthcare Centre and
Staff Facilities building mid-February.
Staff moved furniture, appliances, and
supplies into the Staff Facilities area. The
conversion of the old staff lunchroom into
office space was completed.
P a g e |6
Park Operation & Facilities
A total of 123 group reservations were
recorded for the three largest picnic
shelters, and 2 weddings were held at
McBride Island or the Gazebo between
May and October.
In 2012, the Kiwanis Club of Peterborough
operated the snack bar for a second
summer season. The RP&Z Snack Bar
was operated daily from May 19th to
September 2nd and on weekends in the
fall until Thanksgiving Day. Proceeds
from the snack bar were shared between
the Park and Zoo and the Kiwanis Club of
Peterborough. A contractor installed a
replacement cooling system in the snack
bar.
On the pathway in front of
the snack bar a bottle
filling
station
that
dispenses
municipal
drinking
water
was
installed. The dispenser
was provided by the
Peterborough Children’s
Water Festival (PCWF).
A plaque to acknowledge major
supporters of the PCWF was installed
beside the filling station.
The splash pad and playground area
continued to experience very high
numbers of visitors during summer
months. A major pipe on the splash pad
water supply broke, resulting in the splash
pad being out of service for 2 days while
repairs were made.
An area of the
splash pad rubber surfacing became
unattached from the concrete base and
was repaired in the fall season.
2012 Annual Report
Zoo Operations & Facilities
The Peterborough Disc Golf Club worked
cooperatively with the Park and Zoo to
improve the quality of the 9 basket disc
golf course. The continued construction
of the Water Street Storm Water
Management Pond created a significant
challenge to maintain a full course open
throughout
the
summer.
The
Peterborough Disc Golf Club contributed
funds and design work to complete the
replacement of the disc golf tee signs.
RP&Z maintained accreditation with the
Canadian Association of Zoos and
Aquariums (CAZA). The RP&Z Manager
& Curator finished a three year term on
the CAZA Board of Directors.
RP&Z continued membership with the
International Species Information System
(ISIS) utilizing their software for
maintaining zoo animal records. The Zoo
completed migration of data to the new
Zoo Information Management System
(ZIMS) software program in June 2012.
Zookeeper training continued into the fall
season with implementation of regular
zookeeper daily use planned for the start
of 2013.
Zoo Quick Facts
Park and Zoo staff planted 10 new trees,
consisting of a variety of native species,
throughout the park and in zoo animal
exhibits. A contractor deep root fed trees
and provided dead tree removal and
pruning in the north half of the RP&Z
property.
A total of 440 bags equaling 1,697 kg of
recyclable waste materials were collected
in the park and diverted from landfill in
2012. This is a 19% decrease by weight
over the previous year in recyclable
containers diverted. The elimination of the
sale of bottled water at the snack bar
resulted in a significant reduction in
recycled plastic bottles collected.

Conservation & Education
In the summer months RP&Z provided to
the public an educational exhibit focused
on “Canadian Wetlands” and “the
Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre”. The
exhibit was opened to the public at the
Ross L. Dobbin Building daily from 10 am
to 4 pm during the months of June, July
and August.
Young Canada Works
provided assistance with funding for a
portion of one of the summer student
educators who supervised the building
and provided educational information to
the public. Yearly public attendance for
the exhibit was calculated to be 24,220
visitors.
2012 Annual Report
RP&Z continued to support the
conservation work of the Kawartha Turtle
Trauma Centre (KTTC) in 2012. RP&Z
accepted a large number of injured turtles,
which were then transported to veterinary
care clinics by KTTC workers or
volunteers. The KTTC has taken in over
600 turtles in 2012. The KTTC provided
to RP&Z a loan of a Blanding’s turtle and
three musk turtles, which were placed on
display at the Wetlands Exhibit in the
Ross L. Dobbin Building.
Public
donations for the KTTC totalling over
$1200 were raised at the Canadian
Wetlands educational exhibit in 2012.
RP&Z participated in the Association of
Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) Stud Book for
red-necked wallaby and bobcat. RP&Z
also participated in the African red-billed
hornbill, meerkat and squirrel monkey
AZA Species Survival Plans, and the Emu
and
Brazilian
agouti
Population
Management Plans.
Volunteers served in the role of
educational touch table station providers
and information rovers for the public
visitors during the summer months. A
volunteer appreciation dinner meeting was
held in September.
The parent and tot education program
titled “Zoo Crew” completed its third year.
A third season commenced in November.
The Parent & Tot program provides a fun
educational experience at the zoo for preschool children and their parents.
The education department provided the
first ever Zoo Academy curriculum all day
Grade 1 program pilot “Needs and
Characteristics of
Living
Things”.
Feedback from teachers regarding the
pilot program was very positive and will be
used to evaluate and improve the
program.
A special event was held the afternoon of
July 5th at the Bactrian camel exhibit.
Local spinners volunteered their time to
provide the public the opportunity to
observe, ask questions and to become
involved in the carding, spinning, and
knitting of camel hair.
Research
The “Meet the Keeper” program was
offered to the public on weekday
afternoons during the months of June,
July, and August.
Attendance was
estimated to be between 10 and 15
visitors per session. Daily public viewing
of otters being fed continued to be very
popular with visitors, and was provided
throughout the year.

zoo barn building. The new freezer will
replace several chest freezers used to
store boxes of frozen canine diet, feline
diet, and smelt.
Backup power electrical switch equipment
was installed in the otter building and the
barn. The new equipment will allow
P a g e | 10
backup power to be provided by a
generator during prolonged power
interruptions to ensure temperature is
maintained in the tropical animal holdings
of the barn, to maintain operation of the
walk in freezer, and to ensure the otter
pond pump system can be operated to
control ice formation in winter and to
maintain good water quality.
Construction
of the new
Zoo Animal
Healthcare
Centre
(ZAHC) was
completed
and
the
building was put into use in February
