Communal Wastewater Collection and Treatment Rehabilitation

The project will rehabilitate the wastewater collection and treatment system in the Niisaachewan Anishinaabe Nation in Ontario. The work will rehabilitate two lagoon cells by removing fauna and burrowed wildlife, replacing the lagoon liners, repairing the lagoon berms, and replacing valves and piping between the cells. Two wastewater sewage pumping stations will be upgraded with the replacement of four sewage pumps, wastewater pump vaults, and control systems and electrical panels. In addition, 500 metres of road leading to the wastewater lagoon will be reconstructed. The project will modernize and increase the capacity and reliability of the wastewater collection and treatment system, address and prevent system failures that have caused wastewater overflows, and allow for remote monitoring and operation.
