Sewer and Water

LaVase Sanitary Re-routing

  • This project involves the re-routing of the sanitary sewer mains on LeVase Rd. and Barber St.                                                                                                                                                                

CFB Reservoir Replacement

  • This project provides for the replacement of the CFB Reservoir with a new glass fused to steel standpipe.  The CFB Reservoir is over 50 years old and has deteriorated significantly and presents operational and water quality challenges.  This reservoir will be replaced with a new standpipe located at the Airport Standpipe location which will provide redundancy and additional reliability to the North Bay drinking water distribution system.   This project is expected to be tendered December 2020 and construction to begin spring 2021.  Estimated budget is approximately $4,000,000.

Waste Water Treatment Plant

Wastewater Treatment Plant Aeration System Upgrades

  • This project upgrades the aeration and activated sludge process at the Wastewater Treatment Plant.  A 40 year old pump that is past its useful life will be replaced with a more efficient and reliable pump.  This project also includes the installation of new flow meters which will aid the operations group to further optimize the activated sludge process.  A new aeration tank sump pump will also be included in the upgrades.  Project was tendered spring 2020 and will be constructed summer 2020.  Estimated budget is approximately $400,000.

Wastewater Treatment Plant Electrical Upgrades:

  • This project provides for the upgrades of the electrical systems at the North Bay Wastewater Treatment Facility.  The upgrades follow an electrical master plan which meets current ESA codes and standards and provide redundancy and additionally reliability for the Wastewater Treatment Plant.  This is an ongoing project over several years with approximately $200,000 of upgrades annually.

Ellendale Electrical Upgrades

  • This project provides for the upgrade of the electrical system at the Ellendale Reservoir and Pumping Station.  This will include a new generator, control panels, instrumentation and control system.  This project will be tendered spring 2021 with construction starting summer 2021.   Estimated budget is $750,000.
