river diversion | Creek Bypass

Temporary diversion methods such as River Diversion or Creek Bypass are used to redirect water from a stream or river and focus the flow to a designated portion of the river or creek to allow for construction activities to take place in a specific section of the water body.

This can be projects such as integrity digs, pipeline installation or associated bank protection. As well, temporary diversion projects can often be deployed during the construction of detention ponds, dams, in-stream grade control structures, utility installation, including maintenance, that require working in waterways.

Water transfer systems may appear simple in nature at first glance however, the real work is in the preparation, planning and execution prior to pumping hydrotest water. Canada has some of the most stringent guidelines for pipeline construction and integrity in the world and in collaboration with owners and constructors, NCS Fluid Handling Systems plays an integral supporting role in project success.

The NCS Fluid Handling Systems Designers and Engineers work closely with our clients and all government agencies to coordinate such items as fish movement activities.

Our custom pumping systems will include Department of Fisheries and Oceans-approved suction assemblies, and flexible and adaptable solutions for any terrain we may encounter.
