The projects were completed from June to October by Logistique Saint-Laurent, an Enterprise of the Gilbert Group. The first project , completed in June, involved the relining of 460 m of 150 mm cast and ductile iron watermain, with some PVC repair sleeves, in North Bay, Ontario. The line in question was a dead-end line servicing a small residential area and three large commercial properties along Graham Drive. Developed by Envirologics Engi- neering Inc., in Bracebridge, Ontar- io, the Tomahawk System initially hit the market as a cleaning system that uses rocks as the abrasive and air flow to pull the rocks and debris through the line cleaning and drying it with little to no water. Envirolog- ics added a disinfection system and now the airborne lining . Logistique Saint-Laurent is the first licensee of the Tomahawk BluKote Airborne Lin- ing System. To help facilitate bringing the prod- uct from the lab to the general public — in real -life scenarios — Logistique Saint-Laurent received assistance through the Federal Government 's Build in Canada Innovation Pro - gram (BCIP). According to Stephane Joseph, project lead with Logistique Saint-Laurent , the company received approximately $500,000 to spread across the five projects.
