Marcel Colomb Water Treatment Plant


Location: Lynn Lake, Manitoba
Owner: Marcel Colomb First Nation
Architect: JR Cousin Consultants
Contract Type: Stipulated Sum
Completion Date: November 2012
Project Value: $6.2M


After relocating their community, Marcel Colomb now has a new water treatment plant. The project included raw water piping from the lift station by the lake to the treatment plant. The treatment plant has two traditional treatment trains including all new chemical feeds and distribution pumps. The building construction included a concrete reservoir with a pre-engineered building on top with steel stud infill and masonry veneer. Some rock that had to be blasted for the reservoir excavation and for the raw water intake line. In order to accommodate winter weather conditions, a temporary canvas structure was installed over the building footprint and the concrete work carried on through the winter in order to maximize efficiency and to prevent frost from getting under the base slab.
