Civil Engineer

Recognizing the urgent need for communities to have a reference source to analyze proposals from private companies, the Tribal Council agreed in 1996 to hire a civil engineer. In addition to providing advice and prepare the necessary documents for major construction in the communities, the civil engineer is also responsible for analyzing proposals and bids that are filed with communities to carry out work.

More specifically, the AANTC civil engineer is responsible for providing his advice and opinion for the following services:

  • Development Plans;
  • Geotechnical and hydrogeological studies;
  • Environmental impact studies, characterization studies, Environmental Assessment (CEAA )
  • Feasibility studies for drinking water and wastewater projects;
  • Plans and specifications for supply, treatment and distribution of drinking water projects;
  • Plans and specifications for the collection and treatment of wastewater; network evaluation;
  • Plans and specifications for roads, bridges, ditches and storm sewers;
  • Plans and specifications for buildings and structures;
  • Monitoring and verification of design plans, specifications or reports;
  • Project management and construction supervision
  • Support for the maintenance of community facilities;
