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.
Since 2006, fish habitat data have been routinely collected at 91 sites throughout the Okanogan Basin. The resulting database contains thousands of data points pertaining to various fish habitat features throughout the basin. The fish habitat reporting tool is a Windows-based application that allows users to view real-time fish habitat data, and to display data on a dynamic map. The technology facilitates reporting of status and trends relating to ongoing and planned habitat restoration projects in the Okanogan Basin.
