Proposal Status: Conformity Determination Issued
Project Overview
Type of application: Amendment
Proponent name: Megan Lusty
Company: GN-CGS
Schedule:
Start Date: 2017-05-16
End Date: 2038-05-16
Operation Type: Annual
Project Description:
The Hamlet of Arviat's existing water reservoir includes two cells adjacent to the road out of town to the north of the community. A third cell with an estimated active volume of 103,427 metres cubed is required to meet the water needs of the community to 2038. Locating the new cell (Cell #3) to the west of Cell #1 will share the western berm of Cell #1, reducing the volume of granular needed to be imported, and avoid exposure to high tides, small ponds, or the existing subdrainage system for the cells. Cell #3 will be constructed similar to Cell #1, with a high density polyethylene (HDPE) liner. Equipment is planned to be mobilized to the site during sealift 2017, and construction will take place summer 2018. First fill of the new cell is anticipated for late summer/early fall 2018. The third cell will operate under the Hamlet Water Licence, currently under renewal, 3AM-ARV1016. The contractor must adhear to environmental protection procedures during construction of the new reservoir cell, with measures outlined for the disposal of waste, and protecting drainage systems and waterways. Refer to Environmental Procedures Specifications uploaded to Project Documents. Excavated material is to be reused for the construction of the cell berms.
Summary of Modifications:
Construction of a new water reservoir cell (Cell #3) and new water treatment facility. It has been requested from the NWB that the amount of water authorized be increased to 175,000 cubic metres annually to meet the water demands of the community.
