Award-Winning Project: Neqotkuk First Nation Water Treatment Plant and Distribution Line

Neqotkuk, New Brunswick, Canada

Working in partnership with Neqotkuk First Nation, Englobe used their expertise to improve the local water system by providing detailed design, construction inspection, and management services for a new water treatment facility in Neqotkuk. 

Servicing a portion of the community, the new infrastructure includes drilled wells, potable well pumps and new well building, 1.5km long transmission main from the new well building to the new water treatment facility complete with nano filtration, UV disinfection, flow monitoring, and SCADA system. 

From managing the detailed design to engaging all stakeholders, this project presented unique challenges for our team. By implementing proactive project management, advanced civil engineering, and culturally appropriate support, the new plant handles a design flow of 11.3L/s and allows for future growth.
