Funding your water infrastructure project

EPCOR works closely with our community, municipal and industrial partners to ensure we understand their specific financing and capital planning needs. We work with you to develop a value for money analysis of your project and ensure the financing model is going to provide the greatest return on your investment.

We can provide flexible deal structuring for your water infrastructure project. A public private partnership for water infrastructure is one example of how we provide a difference when it comes to funding your project. Contact us to discuss options.


Regina wastewater treatment plant

EPCOR was chosen as the preferred proponent of the Regina Wastewater Treatment Plant Public Private Partnership based on technical compliance and lowest net present cost to complete the conversion of an existing treatment facility to an expanded biological nutrient removal wastewater treatment plant.

We took over operations in 2014, transitioned the employees and kept the plant operational through the upgrades. We completed construction in 2016 and continue to operate the 30-year contract which ends in 2044. The project was delivered through a turnkey design-build-finance-operate-maintain (DBFOM) contract.


Britannia Mine

We provided the Government of British Columbia with a fully financed 20-year term performance guarantee to treat water contaminated with heavy metals from an abandoned copper mine. The resulting benefits include:

  • A 29% cost savings over the project term (compared to the cost of conventional project delivery)
  • A total of 226,000 kg (497,200 lbs) of heavy metal contaminants removed annually to protect regional aquatic life in the waters of Howe Sound
A design-build-finance-operate delivery method was utilized.


EPCOR 130 water pipeline

In Texas, the 130 Pipeline distributes water to contracted wholesale customers in central Texas through an 85 kilometer, 30-inch pipeline that carries untreated water from the well field to a termination point near the City of Manor and includes pump stations and storage tanks.

We provide water under four existing water supply contracts with municipal customers.

This was an acquisition project.
