Client: The Corporation of the Town of Gananoque
Location: Gananoque, Ontario
The Town of Gananoque’s (Town) East End Sewage Pumping Station (EEPS) required rehabilitation to increase pumping station capacity and prepare for an alternative pumping operation that could accommodate a second sewage forcemain in the future. The Town initiated a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to develop a strategy to improve overall performance and reliability of the EEPS and forcemain and to ensure it can be relied on to accommodate current and future flows .
J.L. Richards & Associates Limited (JLR) completed a Municipal Class EA that identified alternatives through a review of background documentation, consultations with key stakeholders, and an evaluation methodology that showed the positive and negative impacts of each alternative. A preferred solution was presented that consisted of expanding the EEPS on the existing site and new construction of a twin forcemain.
JLR was then retained to provide detail design of the existing site to provide the EEPS expansion and new twin forcemain to advance the project to construction.
