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.
Assocated provided project management services to the Government of Northwest Territories to completed this $xx million, design-build proejct. Our environmental services specific to federal and territorial approvals and authorizations included review of annual monitoring reports and Environmental Construction Operations Plan, liaison with regulators, development of spill response and deck drainage plans, fish compensation, wildlife management plans, and habitat compensation plans.
Associated Environmental has produced three mobile data collection applications and a desktop interface to manage the Centre for Indigenouse Environmental Resources (CIER) environmental data. The Government of the Northwest Territories' Land and Water Division is scoping and piloting the project, and has plans to deploy to other CIER partner agencies to support consistent and robust data collection that is user-friendly.
A 2-day workshop was held in Yellowknife to address one of the most important and exciting challenges facing the Tłı̨chǫ Government: the preservation and growth of Dogrib culture and traditions. In the past few years, the Department of Culture and Lands Protection has been accumulating pictures, audio recordings, videos, and documents from Tłı̨chǫ members. To date over 30,000 items have been collected and digitized. The workshop provided an opportunity for participants to formulate a shared vision and purpose for a “cultural commons” data management solution.
Associated Environmental's Information Management team has been working with the Chief Joseph Hatchery Science Program since 2011, and has designed and implemented a robust information management system (IMS) to effectively manage hatchery operations and field monitoring data. Field and hatchery crews, largely from the Colville Confederated Tribes, use rugged tablet computers (Trimble Yuma) to collect data that are then auto-synchronized with the IMS from the field. The data can be used in real-time by hatchery and science program managers. The IMS also automates and streamlines reporting to stakeholders and government agencies.
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.
