EPCOR Water Services Inc. (EWSI) provides quality water and wastewater services to more than 85 communities and industrial sites across Western Canada.
EWSI also builds, owns and operates water and wastewater facilities, working in partnership with governments, municipalities and industrial clients.
Municipalities and industry enlist us to help address the challenge of providing top quality water and wastewater services in a reliable, safe and environmentally responsible way. Our partners also trust us to provide Design, Build, Finance, Operate and Maintain (DBFOM) options when constructing and upgrading infrastructure.
Our partnerships have allowed small communities to maintain public ownership and regulation of their infrastructure while gaining access to EPCOR's expertise in innovative design, construction, and cost-effective technologies.
A history of service
Since the city's first water treatment plant was constructed in 1903, we've been Edmonton's water provider. The current Rossdale Water Treatment Plant was built in 1947, and a second water treatment plant, E.L. Smith, was constructed in southwest Edmonton in 1976.
In 1996, the City of Edmonton's water branch became part of EPCOR and was incorporated as a separate legal entity called Aqualta Inc. In 1999, Aqualta was re-named EPCOR Water Services, and in 2009, the City of Edmonton transferred ownership of the Gold Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant to EPCOR Water Services.
EWSI operates within the bounds of municipal, provincial and national bylaws, regulations and guidelines. Learn more using the documents below.
