Nigigoonsiminikaaning Wastewater Treatment and Collection System Project

Nigigoonsiminikaaning First Nation (Rainy Lake 26A) is located in northwestern Ontario approximately 40 kilometres east of Fort Frances, on Highway No. 11 (Trans-Canada Hwy), and is comprised of approximately 2,000 hectares (4,942 acres) of land. The project includes development of a communal wastewater collection and treatment system in the community for a design period of 20 years. The wastewater system will consist of approximately 3,500 m of small diameter low-pressure sewer system with individual septic tank effluent pumping (STEP) systems at each house/building and a packaged membrane bioreactor wastewater treatment plant located in a new building. The existing individual on- site septic systems will be removed or decommissioned.
