Windigo Island Water Treatment Project

The Animakee Wa Zing First Nation community of Windigo Island requires a new water treatment plant (WTP) and storage reservoir to replace the exsiting water treatment system currently in the community. The project will include installing two new water intake pipes into the Lake of the Woods approximately 150 m off of the shore, a new reject water outfall pipe approximately 100 m into the lake, constructing a new WTP building adjacent to the existing WTP, installing above ground water reservoir tanks, installinga marine crossing pipe between Windigo Island and Windfall Island, installing six dry hydrants into the lake for fire flows and extending the watermains to unserviced houses in the community. The water treatment system will be sized for the to design year 20, based on projected population growth.
