Team Chemco Rides for Mom

This past weekend Chemco was honored to support the Third Annual Ride for Mom, an event aimed at raising awareness and support for victims of domestic violence.  Brennan and Ken were representing Team Chemco in full leathers to lend their support!

All proceeds raised support the Edmonton Domestic Violence Shelters Engage group, six organizations under their umbrella support women, children, and seniors who are victims of domestic violence. Even though the event has come and gone, it’s never too late to make a donation.

The Fourth Annual Ride for Mom will take place on Saturday, May 9, 2020, where riders will gather again to raise awareness and funds to help stop domestic violence. Mark your calendars!

Note: Edmonton Domestic Violence Shelters Engage (EDVSE) is comprised of representatives from six Edmonton-based organizations that advocate for survivors of domestic violence, for their organizations, and for the sheltering response: La SalleLurana Shelter SocietyWIN HouseWings of ProvidenceSage Seniors Safe House, and the Alberta Council of Women’s Shelters.

Chemco Awarded BC Hydro Bennett Dam Civil Project

Kiewit has awarded Chemco and our JV partner Doig River First Nation the contract to install and operate the scale for the WAC Bennett Dam Rip- Rap Upgrade Project.

Since completion of dam construction nearly 50 years ago, there has been steady deterioration of the rip-rap—large boulder-sized rock that protects the upstream slope of the dam. Upgrading the deteriorated portions of the rip-rap will ensure long-term dam safety and erosion protection from ice and impact from wind and waves in the Williston Reservoir. In May 2016 BC Hydro received approval from the B.C. Utilities Commission for the project as its cost is above the $100 million threshold that triggered a regulatory review.
