Halifax Regional Municipality
Working with the developer of a large rural commercial mall complex, Strum provided detailed design on a new potable water treatment system for mall tenants. This mall depends on groundwater obtained from multiple on-site wells. Each site-building obtains water from a site drilled well and long-term access to water is dependent on the well configuration, groundwater yield, proximity to other on-site and nearby wells, etc.
In addition to providing hydrogeological expertise in finding and designing the well system and spacing strategy, Strum water treatment specialists assessed long-term water quality and quantity needs. As water quality in various areas of HRM can be bedrock dependent, Strum designed a state-of-the-art water treatment system that ensures long-term uninterrupted flow to the mall buildings. in addition, to ensure that quality issues never arise, Strum provided a reverse osmosis system, and accompanying reservoir containment to meet stringent tenant supply requirements. The system is complete and operative at this time.
