This project for the town of Ignace included several different aspects. A new raw water intake structure was constructed in Kekwanzik Lake. A pumping station was built including an underground concrete reservoir with two intake wells and two pump chambers that feeds the new water treatment plant. The pumping station is a brick building with wood trusses. It houses the raw water pumps, a genset and chlorine injection system for pre-treatment of the raw water.
A raw water main was also constructed from the lake intake structure to the pumping station 300m from the lake. From the pumping station, the water main continued three km to the water treatment plant. Construction of the raw water main included air release chambers, a crossing over the Trans Canada Pipeline, under the Canadian Pacific Railway and a crossing under the Trans Canada Highway. The treated water main is then connected to the town's existing distribution system.
The water treatment plant included a 1.7 million liter underground concrete reservoir and two pump chambers sitting on a 650mm slab. The plant is a brick building with wood trusses and houses the treated water pumps, genset, chemical equipment and GE membrane filtration equipment.
