Marten Falls First Nation
Water Treatability Study
JRCC conducted a surface water treatability study at Marten Falls First Nation. The study included a detailed review of plant data, water quality, and infrastructure, as well as onsite bench scale testing. Treatment options that would meet the requirements for a surface water source, including management of disinfection by-products, were reviewed.
The existing treatment system did not provide adequate treatment for turbidity and colour and the reservoir was frequently low and difficult to keep clean. Due to the high DOC and organic material in the treated water, THM levels were above the limits set in the Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality (GCDWQ). A Boil Water Advisory was issued due to low chlorine residual in the distribution system.
JRCC provided testing/piloting protocol treatment and disinfection, both primary and secondary, that would provide a safe drinking water and adequate fire protection. Osorno Enterprises Inc. provided sampling and testing services onsite and in a laboratory setting, and provided a report containing procedures, test results, and evaluations.
