Prince of Wales Hotel Fire Suppression System Intake Replacement in Emerald Bay, Upper Waterton Lake

The Prince of Wales Hotel, operated by Pursuit Collection in Waterton Lakes National Park, is proposing the replacement of its fire suppression system intake located in Emerald Bay, Upper Waterton Lake. The intake and/or piping into Emerald Bay are no longer functioning fully, believed to be due to rust and material breakdown, which could compromise fire suppression ability at the hotel. A temporary intake system will be installed to accommodate hotel operation between May to September 2024, with construction and installation of the permanent replacement intake starting in October 2024.
