Getting your water where it needs to go

It seems so simple. Turn on a faucet, water appears. Flush a toilet, water disappears. But behind that simplicity is a complex infrastructure that most people don’t think too much about. That’s where we come in. Read More

Prioritizing lift station repairs

Identifying and prioritizing lift station repairs is like comparing apples to oranges. Our team developed the Lift Station Assessment Tool to create a consistent standard of measurement that saves time and money.

<p>New Orleans is a very vulnerable city, it’s got the Gulf on one side, the Mississippi runs through it, and you have Lake Pontchartrain, one of the largest lakes in the US, right behind it. New Orleans has a history of flooding, and every time they’ve come back, they’ve built a safer, stronger system.</p> <p>This project is huge. It’s one of the largest pump stations in the world. It’s currently $615 million budget to build three separate sites at the end of each of the drainage canals to Lake Pontchartrain.</p> <p>Stantec performed geotech, structural, electrical, mechanical design, civil design, hydraulic design... We were basically taking care of the entire project. There was over 450 staff from 55 different offices that converged on this project to make it happen.</p> <p>As far as the pump station itself, we have built a lot of resiliency and redundant design into the systems. The generator facilities that we have for these stations basically gives you enough power to power a small city. So in case the whole city gets flooded, this pump station will still be operational and be able to evacuate the water quicker and help New Orleans bounce back quicker.</p> <p>The most rewarding part of the project has been helping out the community. I went to Tulane University and lived in New Orleans for four years in the 90s and really got a connection to the community, the music, the food. New Orleans has a certain draw to it that really pulls you in. More than professionally working on a project, just being able to just help out; when I tell people what I do, a lot of times they’re just like “thank you, thank you for coming and helping us.”</p>

Supporting growth and improving wastewater quality

Central Alberta is growing at a rapid pace, putting stress on the wastewater treatment systems. In places like Olds and Innisfail, their aging infrastructure was stressed, reducing the quality of wastewater that was discharged into natural water systems. With 92 kilometers of forcemains and gravity sewers and four new pump stations, this regional system will meet the needs of central Alberta for the next 25 years and reduce the risk to the environment as the wastewater is reintroduced into the Red Deer River.

How do you prepare a city for a 1:100-year storm?

When a city like New Orleans faces a risk the size of a Category 5 hurricane, the solution needs to be just as formidable. Enter the Permanent Canal Closures and Pumps (PCCP) project. The massive drainage pumping system (largest in the world) will play a key role in a multi-billion-dollar hurricane risk reduction system designed to serve the community now and in the future.

Helping communities secure their food supply with water saving technology

The first of its kind in California, the new system gives growers automated irrigation access through mobile technology that conserves over 12,000 acre-feet per year (that’s enough water to provide for 40,000 households!). An interactive interface allows farmers to schedule water deliveries using an online system where they control their delivery date and receive alerts via email and text that confirm volume and flow rates.
