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 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.
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.
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.
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.
