Fort McMurray, Alberta
Water Supply, Storage, & Distribution
The Southwest Water Supply Line in Fort McMurray had to cross the Athabasca River and traverse steep, environmentally sensitive and geotechnically challenging terrain, as well as established residential neighbourhoods.
Associated Engineering adopted an integrated project delivery approach, consulting with the Municipality, geotechnical specialists, drilling contractors, residents, and multiple stakeholders, to develop a solution that minimized impact on the environment and residents.
Partnering with the contractor ensured the timely completion of the project despite the 2016 wildfire destroying some of the pipes. The Southwest watermain provides a robust secondary water supply to support growth and meet firefighting needs in the area.
