Regina Bay Water Treatment Project

The Animakee Wa Zing First Nation community of Regina Bay requires a new water treatment plant (WTP) and storage reservoir to replace the exsiting water treatment system currently in the community.The project will include installing a new water intake into the Lake of the Woods approximately 170 m off of the shore, a new reject water outfall pipe approximately 120 m into the lake, constructing a new WTP with a below ground reservoir, and installing water service piping throughout the community. The water treatment system will be sized for fire flows to design year 20, based on projected population growth. A plan of the water treatment and distribution system is attached.
