TROUT POND DOCK RESTORATION

In June 2021, Catapult’s employees sacrificed their hard-earned weekend off to restore a local fishing and watering hole near our facility in Fox Creek, AB.

30 years ago, a group of volunteers (including the father of one of our employees) developed a local Trout Pond with a dock and bench, allowing everyone the opportunity to enjoy the scenery, swimming, and fishing the area has to offer. Over the years, it had become a well known hangout spot but was in a serious state of disrepair. A group of Catapulters, with the help of their family and friends, took it upon themselves to clean up the area and repair the infrastructure.

The area was cleaned of all debris, repairs were conducted on the broken boards of the dock. The area is now restored to it’s former glory, allowing a new generation of people to enjoy it.

Catapult would like to thank Ty Gervais, Zach Wiltse, Adam Marshall, Bret George, and Delainey Marshall for their hard work. A special thanks also goes out to Kanaskîy Services Ltd. for partnering with Catapult on this project and agreeing to leave a dumpster on site for locals to dispose of any trash they may accumulate while enjoying the pond.

Catapult Environmental announces new water management complex and new strategic direction

CALGARY, Alberta, July 2, 2019 — Catapult Environmental is pleased to announce that it has opened the Berland Complex, its third water management facility, southwest of Fox Creek, Alberta.

Working with key partners, the Berland Complex is connected to Montney and Duvernay operators through a network of pipelines that will enable Catapult to process, recycle and dispose of 2,000 m3 of water per day. The complex solves costly water management challenges in the area, conveys water via pipeline and reduce C02 emissions by >1000tons annually.

“We are very excited about the potential of the Berland Complex. We’ve partnered with the top operators in the region to connect their operations via pipeline to this facility,” said Michael Wood, President and CEO of Catapult. “We expect to connect more operators to this complex in the coming months which will decrease water handling costs and bring more profitability to our partners.”

Catapult has also solidified its new strategic direction by announcing a name change to Catapult Water Midstream, demonstrating the company’s commitment to build a fully connected pipeline network among its complexes and to operators’ facilities across the Montney and Duvernay.

Crystal Lake Boardwalk Improvement

This past summer, Ty Gervais, Catapult’s Lead Operational Professional at our Fox Complex, brought a unique opportunity to the attention of the Company that would benefit the local Fox Creek community.  Ty proposed that Catapult use its time and resources to improve the boardwalk that leads to the local hot spot: Crystal Lake.

The boardwalk itself was originally built in the 1980s by a group of volunteers with the Fox Creek Fish & Game Society and was further expanded in 1996 by the Junior Forest Rangers in partnership with the Alberta Newsprint Company and Chevron Corporation.  Over the years, conditions of the boardwalk worsened and it has been Ty’s desire to rebuild the walkway for the benefit of the community.

After Home Hardware generously agreed to cut all the necessary lumber to the required length, as well as provide Catapult with a discount on materials, Ty and his group got to work.  It took him and his team, a mix of Catapult employees and other local volunteers, a total of three days to complete the new boardwalk.

A special thanks goes out to Ty Gervais, Lorie Schar, Parker Nedeljak, Wyatt Indoe, Dawson Lewis-Stevens, Eric Doran, Cody Miskelly, and Kelly Derksen for taking the time to complete the wonderful new boardwalk.  Catapult would also like to thank the Fox Creek Home Hardware for partnering with Catapult on this project.  In an area where most of the water bodies are a darker “tea color”, Crystal Lake is unique for its clear, calm waters.

GIVING BACK IN THE COMMUNITY

Catapult provides sustainable water management solutions to help support our environment, our clients, and our communities.  Our focus on sustainability permeates through all aspects of our day-to-day operations including our volunteer initiatives.  Recently, Catapult employees assembled in Edworthy Park to help the City of Calgary in protecting the local trees from an increase in beaver activity.

While beavers play an important role in creating healthy fluvial water bodies, they can also cause issues in their surrounding habitats.  A single beaver can cut down over 200 trees a year and this removal of trees reduces the availability of treed habitats for dependent wildlife, while also creating beaver dams that can cause local flooding and even damage storm drains.  Locally, natural predation has not kept up with the beaver’s population growth and has resulted in forested areas such as Edworthy Park struggling to sustain themselves.

Catapult set out to protect as many living trees as possible by wrapping their bases with metal wiring.  If you’re interested in understanding what this “tree protection” process looks like, click on the City of Calgary’s link below.
