The Waneta Power Project

The Waneta Power Project is an excellent example of Aecon’s commitment to sustainable development. This construction project is designed to make more efficient use of the water flow at this British Columbia dam, situated by the Pend D’Oreille River. Aecon recognizes that there are strong, interdependent links between economic, environmental and social sustainability, and we believe that economic development at the expense of the environment and community should be avoided.

At the Waneta Expansion Project, Aecon has found opportunity to protect the environment on various occasions.  All staff and workers, including the staff and workers of subcontractors, have been trained in environmental awareness and regulatory standards. From the very beginning of construction, this training has been put into practice in different ways. As there were several birds nesting in the trees of the designated work area, Aecon staff waited until the baby birds grew old enough to fly away before starting to clear away trees for the work site. Aecon took on the responsibility of relocating a female black bear, two cubs and a sub-adult, who were occupying the construction area. Staff also stopped work for one day at the intake for the birth of a mule deer fawn, and waited until the doe and fawn had moved up the hill to safety to resume work. To protect reptile movement, snake crossings signs and drift fencing were placed along the road, and barriers with large scuppers were installed.

While working near the Pend D’Oreille River, Aecon has taken measures both to protect the river and maintain the quality of the water being used on the jobsite. Water Treatment Plants have been installed at the powerhouse and intake to clean all the water that is used on site. In addition, Aecon staff consistently applies environmentally friendly Durablend for controlling dust on the roads. In order to control the levels of sediment deposits in the river, silt curtain fences have been installed.  Staying true to Aecon’s pledge to “Go Green”, all garbage from the work site is sorted accordingly, and scrap metal is sold and money donated to organizations that help improve the environment and preserve wild life.

The Waneta Power Project is testament to Aecon’s legacy of successfully building hydroelectric facilities in challenging environments and reaffirms the company’s dedication to sustainable development and environmental responsibility.
