Metro Vancouver Iona Island Wastewater Biosolid Dewatering Facility
Concrete supply to Iona Island Wastewater Biosolid Dewatering Facility for Metro Vancouver
The Iona Island Wastewater Biosolid Dewatering Facility provides primary wastewater treatment to approximately 600,000 residents in Vancouver, the UBC Endowment Lands and parts of Burnaby and Richmond.
The Facility, located within the shared traditional territories of the Musqueam Indian Band, Squamish Nation, and Tsleil-Waututh Nation, uses anaerobic digestion to break down organic materials from wastewater to produce biosolids and methane gas. The methane gas generates heat and offsets some of the electricity required to run the Facility thereby reducing its greenhouse gas emissions.
JB Horizons LP, a partnership between C&C Horizon Contracting, a Musqueam member owned company, and Jacob Bros Construction was selected by Metro Vancouver to supply concrete and construct major raft slabs to support the biomass processing equipment for the facility.
JB Horizons LP has the primary goal of creating employment, training, and career development opportunities for Musqueam Band members.
