The Design-Build project has been designed for an average wet weather flow of 4500 cubic metres/day. The treated effluent will be pumped from the new plant site and transported into a wetland area through a new pipeline/outfall. The plant is considered a Class I facility under the Municipal Wastewater Regulation application.
The Upper Columbia White Sturgeon Recovery Initiative (UCWSRI), an international organization of multi-government and industry stakeholders, was formed in response to the increased concern related to the declining population of the White Sturgeon. Associated Environmental has been working with the Colville Confederated Tribes through its White Sturgeon Enhancement Project to develop an Upper Columbia River White Sturgeon Relational Database Management System for the use of all of the UCWSRI partners, whether technical or policy, and everyone in between. The system will act as the central data information system that will facilitate data and information sharing between the UCWSRI partners.
Associated Environmental was a partner in providing a Water Quality Monitoring Course for Daylu Dena Council. The goal of the week-long training was to empower First Nations to conduct environmental monitoring for contaminants in water.
Associated Environmental completed a Detailed Site Assessment following a Phase I and II Environmental Site Assessment at a proposed site for an Elder Centre and Fire Hall. The site was also assessed for Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada criteria.
The Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation (CCT) have a territory covering 2100 square miles in north-central Washington State. CCT's Resident Fisheries Department’s directs several long term data collection programs. Associated Environmental has been working with the Resident Fish Division since 2010. Our team has designed & implemented a robust centralized information management system which uses rugged tablet computers (Trimble Yuma) for data collection in the field that is efficient, reliable, accurate and standardized. Data is then synchronized with the central management system to allow direct upload of field data.
Associated provides a full range of planning, engineering, hydrogeological, and environmental services to support the First Nations communities and government. We work closely with our First Nations clients. We listen to understand community needs and specific project requirements, and collaborate with project leaders and elders to ensure successful project delivery.
Complementing our community understanding, we have strong relationships with Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC), and understand their standards and requirements for project funding.
