Shoal Lake First Nation Water Treatment Plant
The Shoal Lake 40 First Nation Water Treatment Plant project was constructed by the Sigfusson Northern Shoal Lake 40 Contractors LP Joint Venture.
Shoal Lake 40 First Nation is located approximately 70 km southwest of Kenora, Ontario and approximately 200 km east of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Construction over the span of an 18-month duration included construction of the water treatment plant building complete with in-ground reservoir and a new storage building, installation of site works and site grading, rock excavation, terrestrial watermain and marine watermain construction, installation of a 2400 mm x 2400 mm low lift raw water pumping station, 25 water service connections, chemical feed systems, mechanical, electrical, and HVAC works, control and instrumentation systems, septic system and field bed, as well as decommissioning and retrofitting of existing pumphouses.
The completion of the water treatment plant at Shoal Lake 40 lifted decades-long boil water advisories and provided the community with potable water.
The Sigfusson Northern Shoal Lake 40 Contractors LP Joint Venture was awarded the 2021 Project of the Year Award, Small Municipality Public Works Project from the Ontario Public Works Association (OPWA).
