Purpose of all works is to provide treated water to the Flying Dust First Nation.

Water treatment plant will be built on a small portion of SW36-TWP-59-R17-W3; Well are on SE1-TWP60-R7-W3; Raw water main in the road ditch located in SW36-TWP59-R17-W3 and NW36-TWP59-R17-W3.  All areas were previously disturbed for road construction or actively being farmed.

Project planning activities include Feasibility Study, geotechnical study at the water treatment plant location, design, tendering, operation and maintenance. Waste generation includes one time generation of construction waste and operational backwash waste generation.  Construction waste will be collected in waste collection bins and transported to the nearest off reserve solid waste landfill.  Backwash waste stream will be directed to the nearest gravity sewer.
