What's happening at the Gold Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant

Since the EPCOR Gold Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant opened in 1956 we've remained at the forefront of wastewater treatment through continued investment in new techn​​​ology. We're making ongoing investments to ensure our waste treatment plant is safe, reliable and able to meet the needs of the city and the Gold Bar community. EPCOR is committed to protecting Edmonton river valley parkland for future generations by using technology to safely handle incoming flows without expanding beyond the current footprint and fenceline through to at least 2060.

Our commitments to you

Thanks to community input, we've developed a new plan for the future of the Gold Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant. Our plan protects the natural environment, preserves all of the adjacent parkland, and includes written commitments to the community. We created these commitments with our stakeholders and we've built them into our long-term plan. These commitments will guide Gold Bar wastewater operations and how we will design and build at the plant for decades.

We're working with the community to define our plant operati​​ons.

With your help, we've developed shared goals and a long-term plan to guide how we will design, build and operate the plant for decades to come.
Working with the community​​​​


We have a robust plan for future system reliability while staying within our current footp​rint.

Our long-term plan outlines ongoing investments at our plant to ensure it's safe, reliable and meets our commitment to preserve river valley parkland by keeping future development within our current site.
Long term plan


There will be n​o major increases to flow volumes if the SESS line connects to the Gold Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant.​

Because we treat this wastewater already, the same wastewater would arrive through newer pipes.
