Old Kootenay River Channel Bridge Upgrade Project wins First Place!

Posted on

AquaTerra worked with Seismic 2000 on the Old Kootenay River Channel Bridge Upgrade project this year, which just won 1st place in the 2012 Deputy Ministers Contractor of the Year Awards. The bridge is situated over the Creston Wildlife Management area and runs over two fish-bearing watercourses, which increased the environmental scrutiny associated with the project. AquaTerra was responsible for developing the environmental monitoring plan (EMP), conducting periodic inspections / water testing, maintaining work area boundaries outside of sensitive areas, monitoring for sensitive wildlife and vegetation, and ensuring that impacts to nesting / migratory birds were not occurring as a result of the works.

Congratulations to all involved: http://www.th.gov.bc.ca/celebratingexcellence/contractors.htm#bridges
