Brelje & Race led the effort from the initial planning stage, design, construction management and operational start-up assistance for the addition of two new quadraplex lift stations as well as the relocation and replacement of the treatment system.

Project Challenges

  • Existing treatment system located near lodging and camp offices

  • High Quality Stream Adjacent to Site

Solutions and Successes

  • Maintained operation of existing system during construction
  • Moved treatment components away from camp use areas
  • Improved treated effluent quality
  • Completed system provides several layers of reliability and redundancy allowing maintenance staff to focus on other tasks at the camp
