H2O Innovation Inc. (“H2O Innovation” or the “Corporation”) announces that it has provided its support to a community in Northern Alberta by expanding their emergency drinking water supply within a few weeks only.

As a result of the unprecedented wildfire season this year, a number of communities in Northern Alberta were evacuated. Emergency housing was set up to host up to 1,000 evacuees. In support of this relief effort, H2O Innovation deployed a team to the community of John D’Or to maximize the production of drinking water from the existing treatment facility. The team was onsite in early July, within four weeks of the notice to proceed, and provided a 30% plant expansion by July 21st. The collaborative effort involving Little Red River Cree Nation, Indigenous Services Canada, and Tetra Tech allowed this rapid increase in drinking water supply and played a vital role in providing housing for the evacuated communities. The drinking water system at John D’Or employs ultrafiltration (UF) as pretreatment for nanofiltration (NF) with a production capacity of 915 cubic meters per day.

“I could not be prouder of our team, who was able to prioritize this emergency request and complete a 30% plant expansion within only a few weeks. We appreciate the opportunity to contribute to the relief efforts in the aftermath of this natural disaster and to make a difference for these communities. This project perfectly aligns with our mission to provide solutions to complex water problems and to positively impact lives in times of need,” stated Frédéric Dugré, President, Chief Executive Officer and co-Founder of H2O Innovation.
