Supplying water for construction of Site C Dam

Site C Dam, Fort St. John, Fall, 2016

As Site C dam begins construction near Fort St. John, BC, BI Pure Water has been assisting with package water pumping systems and intakes which help speed construction and lower build costs for the remote site.

Potable water for the construction workers and filtered water for making concrete is pumped from the fast moving Peace River to various sites.

Surrey MLA Amrik Virk visited BI Pure Water’s factory in September in appreciation for being a BC company supplying engineered water systems to the Site C Clean Energy Project, saying, “The Site C Clean Energy project is providing opportunities for British Columbians all over the province. BI Pure Water is an example of an excellent business that is contributing to the future of energy in British Columbia”.

Scott Foster, President of BI Pure Water, says, “It’s good to be a part of something big like Site C in BC. I think it’s good for the province to have such a large capital project and it’s good long term for our energy needs.”

High Arctic water treatment plant supplies growing population

Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, Oct 2016

A steel-frame package treatment plant in four parts made a 4000km journey by river and Arctic sea to reach a very remote community, and was re-assembled and commissioned this fall.

The new water treatment plant has UV, filtration, and chlorination, providing a reliable source of good drinking water.

BI Pure Water staff are able to check on the treatment system and provide support with real-time remote monitoring, even making adjustments remotely.

Piping and vaults under the permafrost distribute water to community services including fire hydrants and the new High Arctic Research Station. The hamlet, which has very rarely seen tourists and visitors, now has cruise ships stopping by for a look around.
