Sask Water SSEWSS Zelma East Raw Water Pipeline

BHP Auger Bore

Lanigan, Saskatchewan to BHP Saskatchewan Mine Site

This project incorporated a water supply line that was designed to provide water to one of Saskatchewan’s largest Potash mines. The work included the installation of a PVC water line from a proposed booster station near Lanigan, Saskatchewan to the BHP Jansen mine site. Familiar with the Saskatchewan landscape, Hamm was able to forecast and mitigate the risks associated with the weather, public and ground conditions. Working closely with Saskwater and their consultant, the project team was able to deliver the work in a timely manor. A unique aspect of the project was the environmental monitoring and reporting required. Specific scopes of work included:

  • 21 Auger Bore drill shots
  • 73 total meters of 1050mm steel casing beneath CP Rail lines
  • 56 meter Auger Bore of 1050mm steel casing beneath Highway No. 667
  • 533 total meters of 1050mm steel casing beneath grid roads
  • 30 meter Auger Bore of 1050mm steel casing beneath a stream
