Norway House Cree Nation Water Intake Replacement and Lagoon Cell Decommissioning

Norway House Cree Nation community requires an upgrade to the raw water intake system for the
WTP and decommissioning of the old wastewater lagoon Cells #1 and #2. The existing raw water intake fish screen in Jack River will be replaced with a Z-alloy screen to prevent the accumulation of zebra mussels. A chlorine disinfectant line will be installed alongside the existing intake pipe and attached at the end of pipe to keep the interior of the intake pipe clear of zebra mussels and algae.
The old lagoon Cells #1 and #2 will be decommissioned by draining the cells, removing the valves, valve boxes, intercell pipes, aeration equipment, spillways, dewatering the sludge, leveling the site with the perimeter dikes and dewatered sludge, extend the forcemain from the WTP to the old lagoon Cell #3 for backwash discharge and installing a new section of forcemain between the WTP and the new wastewater treatment lagoon.
