Mine Water Treatment Plant – Northern B.C.

Major constituent removal was focused on selenium and metals and was designed to treat water to environmental discharge criteria. The selenium treatment system can perform up to 6,500 m3/day. The metals remove system can perform up to 16,000 m3/day. Integrated Sustainability provided discipline engineering including plant layout optimization and piping design to maximize performance while reducing footprint and cost.

Wastewater Containment Structures

Provided the siting, geotechnical investigation, preliminary/detailed engineering, regulatory package, procurement, and construction services required for 2 x 50,000 m3 saline water storage ponds in NE BC. Collected orthorectified imagery with an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), which was used to provide periodic excavation and fill volumes. Provided onsite QA/QC construction services. Successful in obtaining approval from BC Regulator. Implementation of an innovative outtake system.

Mine Water Treatment Plant – Northwest B.C.

Feasibility level engineering design and cost estimating for a mine water treatment plant.
Major constituents for removal included copper, cadmium, iron, arsenic, and ammonia. Plant designed for peak flows of 3,000 m3/day. The design included targeted treatment for arsenic and ammonia. Integrated Sustainability provided full process design, discipline engineering and cost estimating to support the feasibility level design development of the WTP. This includes Influent pre conditioning was investigated to reduce size of ammonia treatment system and reduce estimated plant TIC by $3.4 million.

River Bank Water Intake Filtration

Evaluate 3 sites and several water intake technology options for a 60,000 m3 per day water intake on the Liard River in British Columbia.

Produced Water Hub

The client requested that Integrated Sustainability transform an existing borrow pit into a Lined Water Storage Pond/Water Hub in northeast British Columbia. The Pond will be used to store a combination of hydraulic fracturing fluid (flowback) and make-up source water, which could include saline groundwater, freshwater, or a combination of the two.

Pipeline Routing & Desktop Study

Selecting an appropriate pipeline route to carry and unconfirmed volumetric flow rate of natural gas to connect into a major transmission line

Preliminary Pipeline Design Development

Integrated sustainability was tasked by their client to develop a flexible pipeline design. This design was required to meet a range of volumetric flow rates due to uncertain client targets and future projections.
