Project #: R.097512.001

Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) on behalf of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC), is seeking tenders for renovation upgrade to three sewage Lift Stations at the AAFC Lethbridge Research and Development Centre in Lethbridge, AB.

AAFC owns, maintains, and operates a sewer system servicing the Lethbridge Research and Development Centre (LeRDC) facilities and an Alberta Provincial Jail and Detox/Treatment Centre. The LeRDC has a staff of 600 while the Provincial Jail has a staff of 150 with an inmate population of 600.  Work will only be at the LeRDC location but could have an impact at the Alberta Provincial Jail and Detox/Treatment Centre. Three Lift Stations operate within this sewage collection system, which outflows into a force main to the City of Lethbridge sewer system. The Lift Stations are all 37 years old, with one known retro-fit since original construction. The structures appear to be sound, but the mechanical and electrical infrastructure is at the end of its serviceable life.

Work will start with Lift Station 1, then Lift Station 3, and finish with Lift Station 2. Each Lift Station is to be completed and commissioned before starting at the next location.

Service change over to the new electrical equipment is to occur during off peak hours for the Lift Station. Pumps are to be changed over during off peak hours.

The requirement is subject to the provisions of the Canadian Free Trade Agreement (CFTA).

Value of Project:  To assist with bonding and insurance requirements, this project is estimated between   $1,000,001  >  $5,000,000
