This project is located outside of Prince George, BC near Tumuch Lake. MSR Solutions was hired by Canfor and the installers, West Kootenay Septic Solutions (WKSS) in 2016. We were hired to design a wastewater treatment system to service a 35 person remote camp to act as a home base for the surrounding area to be logged. The camp’s facilities include bathrooms, showers, laundry and kitchens.
Matt Gable, who was the project designer and drafting designer, went out to site to investigate the camp area. Test pits and percolation tests were conducted to determine the soil characteristics and a suitable location for the disposal field. Due to the remoteness of the camp, the client wanted the system to be simple to use with low maintenance requirements. To meet this request, a gravity fed Type 1 septic system was designed and installed to service the camp.
In 2018, MSR was again brought on to upgrade the existing system to meet their new need for a 70 person camp. MSR provided additional treatment for the system and amended the filing to be sent to the Health Authority. The project has since then been completed with the system operating as designed.
MSR has a long history with Canfor and WKSS on many past and present projects because we have provided cost effective and robust systems that satisfies the client as well as the installers. MSR has been pleased to have work both of them and will continue to work with them in the future projects to come.
