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.
Associated Environmental (AE) has been entrusted with developing software and analysis tools for many of Colville Confederated Tribes (CCT) natural resource management initiatives. AE has a role in more than 30 CCT-led projects, such as development of a fish hatchery to mitigate impacts of hydropower dams, monitoring mercury in Lake Roosevelt, managing hunting and fishing on the reservations, and long term monitoring of fish and fish habitat in the Okanogan River Basin. These diverse programs require collection and handling of a broad range of data over many years, sharing these data with other agencies and the public, and preparing complex reports.
Associated Environmental conducted Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments at proposed wastewater treatment plant site and sewer main locations for the Kamloops Indian Band. The Band initiated the study as part of the due diligence process prior to proceeding with construction of new wastewater infrastructure.
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.
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 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.
