H2O Innovation has over a dozen projects with First Nations in both Canada and the United States. In Canada specifically, we understand the unique requirements linked to site remoteness, climate design requirements, short construction windows, cold water temperatures, and difficult-to-treat raw water.
Through past projects, we have unique experience in selection of appropriate construction materials, equipment layouts development, as well as in working with northern First Nations. Our team makes sure it works with respect to system operability, careful chemical handling, and chemical storage facilities.
We believe we offer the best value as a supplier and partner for your project by meeting your short- and long-term goals, which always provides a win-win situation for the community.
First Nations' Projects
Your unique problem requires a unique solution based on footprint, water quality, membrane replacement considerations, operational constraints, etc. The solution comes from a thoughtful assembly of individual unit process operations to achieve your end goals. Below are the most common technologies H2O Innovation relies on for First Nations projects.
Reverse Osmosis & Nanofiltration
Nanofiltration and reverse osmosis are used to treat brackish water and remove salt contaminants from the source water.
Ultrafiltration and microfiltration
Ultrafiltration and microfiltration are used to remove colloidal matter, reduced metals and color when associated the appropriate pretreatment. In most cases, they offer the ideal pretreatment to reverse osmosis.
Multimedia and greensand filters can be used as stand-alone systems to primarily remove particulate, iron, and manganese. They can also used as part of the pretreatment chain in front of reverse osmosis.
Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection
Ultraviolet is used for disinfection and can be added at different steps of the process to increase the bacteria removal credits.
Clearlogx® / IntelogxTM
Clearlogx® can be added to any of our system and used to precisely and continuously control the feed of specialty chemicals in order to improve overall treatment process efficiency.
