Gingolx Sewage Lift Station

Project: Gingolx Sewage Lift Station

Client: Gingolx Village Government

Consultant: McElhanney

Description: Construction and installation of a pre-fabricated, fiberglass reinforced plastic sewage lift station complete with submersible pumps, controls, sanitary modifications, force main, control building, and standby electric power generator.  The project is in the remote First Nations village of Gingolx, BC, at the mouth of the Nass River on the North Coast of BC about 20Km from the southern tip of the Alaska panhandle.  The schedule not only had to accommodate working in a remote environment, but it also had to accommodate working below high tide line.  The environmentally sensitive and remote location of such a small village necessitated careful and efficient use of  local materials, labor and equipment, knowledge of local infrastructure conditions, and full time compliance with DFO fisheries, sediment control and dewatering requirements.

 

  

The work was conducted in an efficient and timely manner, and the project was completed on schedule and within budget.  This project was very successful due to the open communication and team approach by all parties involved.  It was also completed in a sensitive manner, minimizing interruptions to the daily operations of the staff.
