The Penn West Lobstick Cardium Water Intake System is located on the North Saskatchewan River in Brazeau County, approximately 15 kilometers outside of Drayton Valley. Penn West was experiencing low infiltration rates at their water intake system due to build-ups in the intake system’s piping and at the intake piping slotted perforations. Sameng was retained to re-establish the original system capacity and utilize the full draw volumes licensed to Penn West at the location.
Assess existing infrastructure conditions due to reduced water infiltration rates; The primary objectives of the project were to:
After evaluations of the existing infrastructure was completed via pump testing and river water elevation data analysis, the recommendation was to rehabilitate the existing system under existing Alberta Environment licenses.
The following tasks were completed prior to construction:
Project construction included the following items:
Additionally, construction period engineering services were performed, including on-site construction engineering and management. Lastly, post-construction engineering services, including as-built drawing preparation and payment finalization recommendations were performed by Sameng.
