Drinking water treatment system from John Meunier to provide reliable drinking water supply for British Columbia villagers

Sponsored by

MONTREAL, PQ, Canada, Oct. 5, 2011 -- John Meunier Inc./Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies Canada has been awarded a contract to supply a drinking water treatment system to the Nisga'a Village of Gitwinksihlkw, British Columbia, Canada.

The package drinking water treatment plant will have a capacity of 500 m³/day and includes an ACTIFLO® high rate clarification system and Dusenflo® gravity filtration, plus all ancillary chemical dosing, instrumentation and control systems.

The ACTIFLO® process has been selected for its reliability, compactness and suitability for treating Nass River water, which contains very fine volcanic and glacial particles.

Gitwinksihlkw, with a population of 250, is located on the north bank of the Nass River, 100 km northwest of Terrace, BC, and 1400 km from Vancouver, BC. Over the past several years, the village, one of four Nisga'a communities, has experienced frequent water shortages, requiring water to be trucked in for domestic use.

The new treatment plant is designed to provide microbiologically- and chemically-safe and aesthetically pleasing drinking water for the village. The finished water quality will meet or exceed the Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality (May 2008), as well as the disinfection requirements outlined in the Protocol for Safe Drinking Water in First Nations Communities, INAC (2006). The plant start-up is planned for fall 2011.
