Work Description: 

Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) is looking to replace 21 variously sized valves and 9 curb stops with associated drains and rock pits (6 total) at the Kitimat River Hatchery. The existing hatchery was constructed in the early 1980’s along with the installation of the water piping and valves. Many of the existing valves are currently not operational and are freezing underground during winter, resulting in damage to the above ground operation. 

The valves are used to service the raceways where the hatchery rear Chinook, Steelhead, Chum, and Coho. Each raceway was designed for a specific type of salmon and can hold adults and juvenile salmon during various phases of the salmon’s life cycle.

Details of the existing valves along with the proposed materials for replacement are included in the contract drawings and in the quantities table below. Each valve has a corresponding ID associated with it as shown on C1 of the drawings. This project will focus on replacing valves 1-12, 32-36, 44-47. 
The scope of work for this project consists of the removal and replacement of twenty- one (21) butterfly valves ranging in size from 75mm to 500mm, and nine (9) 19mm curb stop drains with service boxes. Details of the existing valves along with the proposed materials for replacement are included in the contract drawings and in the quantities table below. The scope of work includes all of the associated valve operators, flanges, riser and floor boxes/stands. The valves are all located at significant depths between two (2) to four (4) meters below the existing asphalt and adjacent to the existing hatchery building and concrete rearing ponds. Raceway 1 to 6 have embedded concrete troughs, in the asphalt near the surface, that connect directly to the raceways from the hatchery building, it is recommend that the contractor remove and replace to original or better condition, this  is  required  for access  to  valves  1  to  12. Special attention should be paid to the location of the existing valves when evaluating this tender and the requirements set out for trenching and excavation support outlined by the Geotechnical Engineering package. 
Note:  The  Hatchery's  piping  was  design  and  installed  in  accordance  with  1980's Plumbing  codes. The contractor will be responsible to ensure they have all materials necessary to connect the new valves to the existing piping."
