McCue completed the amendment to the Temporary Water Treatment Plant Construction Design Report in support of a new exploration project permit application for a mine project located in northern British Columbia, Canada. The Temporary Water Treatment Plant design objective is to remove total suspended solids (TSS), ammonia & metals at rates up to 1,268 GPM. McCue consolidated and updated the design basis and details from a 2-year old design for the overall project. McCue also developed operating and maintenance costs, closure requirements for the containerized equipment (chemical treatment process), and completed a lifespan assessment of the containerized equipment to answer questions posed by the application reviewers. McCue also prepared a preliminary sludge management plan for the plant to satisfy the application reviewers.
