Project Description:

The Constance Lake First Nation Water Treatment Plant was a critical infrastructure upgrade required for the First Nation community. The existing facility was at the end of its lifespan and required major upgrades and restoration to service the community. The First Nation community determined it was critical that the aging infrastructure be replaced and replaced to accommodate the community now, and for future expansion of the community. Prior to construction start the owner undertook the installation of a new state of the art well system to serve the new water treatment plant under an existing baseball field and installed the services to the new lot where the new plant was to be constructed. The new Water Treatment Plant was a 5,000 square foot pre-eng building sitting on a cast-in-place foundations that incorporated the new tanks and reservoirs for the plant. It also included tie-ins to the previously installed services for the well system. The plant was upgraded with brand new state of the art mechanical systems, electrical systems, process equipment, and controls equipment to ensure that the plant remained fully operational with very little maintenance requirements. The project was critical for the community therefore strict timelines were set in place as well communication was key in the success of the project to aid in lifting the boil water advisory for the community and its residents.
