Proposed Project

Red Earth First Nation is proposing a water treatment plant expansion and upgrade. The building footprint will be expanded including additions to the existing reservoir for treated water storage. The existing water treatment equipment will be removed and replaced and upgraded. Existing pumping equipment will be removed replaced and upgraded. The interior of the building will be modified to suit new pumping and treatment equipment, including office spaced, electrical equipment, mechanical equipment, backup power generation, bathroom, and chemical storage. Treatment, storage and distribution designs are to meet a 10 year growth period. This plant will service both the Natacam and Carrot River communities.
