The Trent Force main project was part of the CRD’s Wastewater Treatment Project’s conveyance system and involved the installation of a 1.9 km pipe from the intersection of Chandler Avenue and St Charles Street in James Bay connecting to the Clover Point Pump Station. Gwaii worked with Jacob Bros and the CRD to develop an Environmental Protection Plan for the project and completed weekly environmental monitoring during the construction of the force main. Additionally, Gwaii’s scope of work involved the investigation of contaminated soils and the facilitation of disposal.


For approximately 100 years, McLoughlin Point was the site of a bulk fuel /oil storage and transfer station. In 2017, construction for the new CRD Waste Water Treatment Plant at the site began and contamination in soils was identified during preliminary site excavations. GEL was retained by the general construction contractor to perform investigations and guide remediation with the goal of obtaining a Certificate of Compliance for the site ahead of the commissioning of the plant.
