Project Description:
This amendment is being submitted by the Government of Nunavut - CGS on behalf of the Municipality of Whale Cove for to amend water licence 3BM-WHA2126. All previous information submitted for this water licence remains the same, except the current raw water intake at Fish Lake will be refurbished and a second intake will be installed next to it as part of the new water treatment plant project. Water use is expected to remain under the 299 m3 daily limit, and the 30,000 m3 annual limit in accordance with the current water licence.
Summary of Modifications:
The Government of Nunavut is in the process of designing a new water treatment plant at the same site as the current plant. This project will include the construction of a new raw water intake in Fish Lake next to the existing intake. The GN intends to refurbish the existing intake by replacing the pump, motor, screen, wiring, heat trace and associated equipment, an allowance is to be carried in the design for intake inspection and other repairs during construction. Each intake will be sized to provide sufficient flow based on the design flow and associated headloss, both during normal WTP operation and fire flow (1,000 L/min) bypass scenarios. A second, new inclined shaft intake will be constructed parallel to the existing intake to provide redundancy protection against intake failures. The intake will be constructed of an insulated HDPE carrier pipe not less than 300mm in diameter that houses the pump and HDPE discharge pipe. The carrier pipe will be sized so that the pump can easily be retrieved through the pipe without binding or restrictions, including consideration for loading on the pipe. The pump will be submersible style mounted to an engineered skid for ease of installation and removal through the carrier pipe. Both the new intake and existing intake shall include considerations for the following: · Primary and backup heat trace system with independent controllers; · Fish screen that meets Department of Fisheries and Oceans guidelines; and · Adequate anchorage, weights and ice protection.
