Balancing Logistics with Precision

Remote Fly-In Community Gets Critical
Water Treatment Infrastructure Upgrades

Sometimes getting to the job requires as much planning and meticulous execution as doing the job.

Di-Tech performed a transformative industrial upgrade to a water treatment facility at Saint Theresa Point, a secluded, fly-in-only First Nation reserve.

All equipment was within the payload capacity of the plane, including bringing backup equipment, and pre-emptively preparing for any unforeseen circumstances that may arise.

Our dedicated crew resided at a specially organized construction camp, guaranteeing on-demand availability for seamless execution.

This commitment to efficiency and preparedness resulted in the project being completed within one day!

Saint Theresa Point

Saint Theresa Point is a remote Indigenous community located in Northern Manitoba’s pristine wilderness. It is surrounded by dense forests and many lakes on the rugged Canadian Shield terrain, isolated and accessible primarily by air. The people in this close-knit community maintain their traditional cultural identity with a strong sense of resilience and pride in their heritage.

Water Treatment Plants in northern Manitoba reserves play a vital role in ensuring access to clean and safe drinking water:

  • Water is sourced from nearby lakes, rivers, or groundwater sources.
  • It undergoes a preliminary screening to remove large debris and particles before being drawn into the treatment system.
  • The water then passes through filtration systems to remove finer particles, microorganisms, and dissolved substances.
  • Following filtration, the water undergoes disinfection to eliminate harmful pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites.
  • Treated water is subsequently stored in reservoirs or tanks before distribution through pipeline networks.
  • Water quality is closely monitored to ensure that it meets regulatory standards and is safe for consumption.

Proper maintenance and upkeep of water treatment infrastructure are essential to ensure the continued effectiveness and reliability of the system. This includes routine inspections, repairs, and upgrades to equipment and facilities as needed.
