Plant Drainage System to Columbia River; Ground
Stormtec was contracted to assist BC Hydro with site water management throughout construction. The water treatment system required an oil-separator and sediment knock-out chamber in order to meet BC Water Quality Guidelines. Working in a protected freshwater environment on a high-profile project required high attention to detail with no room for error.
- Treating water to meet BC Water Quality Guidelines for the Protection of Freshwater Aquatic Life.
- Upgrading the system with additional adsorption and ion exchange units due to high fluctuations in construction water quality.
- Discharged the treated water to the ground rather than into the plant-drainage system, reducing the cost of the monitoring program.
