Project overview

As part of the Faro Mine Remediation project, DENT in partnership with the Dease River First Nation (Kaska-DENT Construction JV) performed the installation of an insulated HDPE water conveyance system along with the associated infrastructure. The scope of work included earthworks, pipe fusing, heat trace installation, upgrades to mechanical and electrical systems, and the installation of a new pump house.

In addition, Kaska-DENT also removed 2 fish barriers and an ice boom from a nearby water system on the site.
Work was performed in the late fall and winter and cold weather impacts were a major factor that needed to be mitigated for worker safety and quality of the work.
