The City of Prince Rupert has put in motion its latest plan for construction of the leachate treatment lagoon site at the Ridley Island Landfill location, putting the call for construction services up for bid on the BC Bid website late last week.
As the synopsis for the bid process notes, the work ahead is related to site preparation, drilling, blasting, excavation, rock supply and installation, pipe work and geosynthetic material installation.
Also on the to do list, installation of aluminum walkways, supply and installation of floating pontoons, other assorted infrastructure, trenches, conduits and cables.
