Catterall & Wright consulted for the City of Saskatoon to design the rehabilitation of Parking Lot B at the Sasktel Centre Arena.

The grading design included introducing two new ridge lines which significantly improved the site drainage. The asphalt pavement design incorporated the TruPave paving mat, a nonwoven pavement interlayer composed of high strength fiberglass and polyester fibers. A sixty millimeter asphalt overlay was placed over the paving mat.

The purpose of the paving mat was to mitigate crack propagation through the asphalt overlay and create a moisture barrier between the existing pavement and the overlay, thus significantly extending the life of the new asphalt pavement.

This project resulted in an innovative and economic solution to improve drainage and resurface the existing Parking Lot.

The objective of this project was to provide a reliable, cost-effective, and environmentally conscious wastewater treatment system for the Greenbryre Estates development located near Saskatoon. The design of the Greenbryre Wastewater Treatment System required the integrated design of several highly technical components.

The system begins with a low pressure sewer system that delivers effluent from individual septic tanks at each residence to the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). Primary treatment (solids removal) occurs in each septic tank prior to being pumped to the WWTP.

The WWTP consists of several components, including dual train Submerged Attached Growth Reactor (SAGR) systems, a Recycle/Dosing Pumping Station, an Effluent Pumping Station, a Blower Building complete with peristaltic chemical feed pump system for disinfection, and holding ponds.

The wastewater system was designed for a flow of 343 cubic metres per day, which will service approximately 250 residences, as well as the golf course clubhouse and a small commercial facility.

The wastewater solution for Greenbryre Estates was the result of collaboration between engineers at Catterall & Wright and the subconsultant, Nelson Environmental Inc. The project resulted in an innovative yet practical wastewater solution for this subdivision in Saskatchewan.

In 2010, The City of Humboldt experienced extreme weather events which resulted in severe flooding of the area and several sewer backups. An XPSWMM computer model of the entire City of Humboldt’s sanitary sewer collection system was constructed.

Data such as high water marks in sanitary sewer manholes, location of sewer backups, sewage pump station data, and environmental records were collected to aid in the calibration of the model, with the objective being to re-create the storm event of 2010.

Once an accurate model was constructed, mitigation recommendations could be issued. One of the recommendations was a large Sanitary Sewer Storage Tank. Sanitary Sewer Storage Tanks began construction in fall 2012 with completion in spring 2013.

The tanks allow for storage of sanitary sewer during storm events allowing for controlled discharge back to the system when sewage flows have dissipated. The design objective was to design a sanitary sewer storage tank system, which would remediate basement flooding during large rainfall events.

Catterall & Wright provided design, tendering and inspection services for construction of an expansion and refresh of the Water Distribution Facility. The existing facility had reached the end of its useful lifetime and was beginning to experience equipment faults at an increasing rate. The facility had also reached its maximum design capacity both in terms of water storage and water distribution pumping. The upgrade includes a new 2200 cubic meter storage reservoir, new distribution pumps and a general building refresh which brings it up to current standards. Distribution pumping was re-arranged in such a way to allow greater flexibility in flow of water in the reservoirs. One of the most significant challenges on this project is coordination of the construction in such a way that the facility remains in operation throughout the process and water supply to the City is not interrupted. This project will significantly improve the reliability of the system and reduce the number of City wide precautionary drinking water advisories. This project is expected to be completed in the spring of 2017.

Osler Multi-Purpose Storm Pond & Soccer Facility

 

Project summary:

Background: The Town of Osler, located approximately 20 km north of the City of Saskatoon, is located on a very flat valley plain. Historically, drainage throughout the Town has been relatively poor given the relatively flat sloped topography. The local school is located central to the community and had a large land base that would become inundated with water during spring thaw and summer rainfall events.

The solution :The Town and School Board partnered to develop a storm water detention system, complete with conventional storm sewer network to improve drainage for both parties. The system included a wet//dry storm detention pond. When dry, the pond will be used as a soccer facility by the school and community.

The Design: The pond was excavated to a depth of 3 metres below existing ground elevation. The inside perimeter has a below grade weeping tile system to ensure the pond will drain after a rainfall event. The raised centre portion of the field ensures the playing surfaces will not flood during more frequent storm events (1:2 year frequency). The pond is drained by a manhole style storm water pumping station, with all storm water pumped in the direction of natural flow toward the South Saskatchewan River.The shape and size of the storm pond was set to accommodate one regulation soccer field or two smaller youth fields. The sunken nature of the pond allows for natural raised seating/spectator areas around the soccer fields. Coincidentally, a regulation size soccer pitch also accommodates a 1:100 year storm event in this area. The field can also be utilized for other school or Town events throughout the summer or winter months.

Functionality: The primary function of this facility was to improve surface drainage within the school property and the central core of the Town. By implementing computer software to model the various storm events and drainage system, the designed system can accommodate a storm event up to a 1:100 year frequency. The storm water pumping manhole was designed to drain the pond area within 24 hours. This was important to ensure not only the health of the sod, but also the usefulness of the soccer pitch(es). The subdrainage system around the soccer field will ensure the areas are able to completely drain after a storm event to ensure consistent playing conditions on the pitch after the pond has drained.

The secondary function of the facility was to accommodate the increasing popularity of soccer in the community of Osler. The main soccer pitch in Osler was located in the north end of the Town. With the new facility, the soccer pitch is immediately adjacent to the school which will be more convenient for school programming. With the sunken nature of the field, spectators will have a unique viewpoint and perspective of the field.
