DRIFTPILE WATER TREATMENT PLANT
Innovative can sometimes be complex solutions, but the solution had to be such that the overall operation and maintenance of the facility was simplified and trouble-free.
Location: Driftpile, AB
Project Type: Water Wastewater
About This Project
Project elements included: detailed system and process assessment; distribution system modeling; geotechnical investigation; environmental assessment; pilot testing; architectural; municipal, structural, process, electrical and instrumentation design; administration and field services during construction; and post construction services.
This project presented a number of challenges that were addressed by the expertise and dedication of the client and entire design team. At the time Indian and Northern Affairs Canada did not have any standards or guidelines for First Nation water treatment facilities, but mandated that the Health Canada’s Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality be met.
This project was a success due to the collaborative and professional efforts of the client’s management team, the design team, the contracting group, and various federal and provincial stakeholder groups. These efforts were advanced through the use of preliminary and detailed design review sessions, project progress meetings during construction, and stakeholder information sessions at key project milestones.
