There’s enough to deal with when workers are on a remote site. The last thing employers need to worry about is providing crews with fresh water and good sanitation.
In 2001, Kevin Slough, an experienced engineer with master’s degrees in environmental engineering and business administration, recognized the opportunity to provide mobile high-quality water and wastewater treatment systems to construction and drilling camps in the Fort McMurray area in Alberta, Canada’s oil sands. With a couple of (now retired) partners and investors he started FilterBoxx Water and Environmental. Its systems can be found in most of the man camps in Alberta and on gas, oil and mining work sites and man camps in British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Ontario.
