About the Rossdale site 

The Rossdale site is located in Edmonton's North Saskatchewan River valley, close to the Walterdale Bridge. The 36.4 acre (14.7 hectare) facility is a well-known historical site in the heart of the city.

The Rossdale site has been providing water and power to Edmonton citizens for more than 100 years. Today, the site supplies Edmonton and its surrounding areas with drinking water and power.

Historical significance

We recognize the archaeological and historical significance of the site: the importance of this area in fostering communities predates the City of Edmonton itself. As such, we are committed to preserving the heritage and history of Rossdale, providing more open and public space and minimizing impacts to the community. To ensure the integrity of this area, all excavations completed on site will be appropriately managed. When appropriate an archaeologist of record will be on site during ground disturbances.

Rossdale Substation Building Extension

We are advising landowners, occupants and residents in the Rossdale neighbourhood about plans to modify the existing Rossdale Substation. The substation is located within our existing Rossdale site area.

Relationship with First Nations

We are committed to establishing respectful, long-term relationships with First Nations. We will engage First Nations from a position of mutual trust, combined with a willingness to understand their needs and concerns — cultural, social, spiritual, environmental and economic.

We engage with First Nations to ensure that potential impacts of our projects are properly identified and understood, and that we are working alongside one another to reach mutually agreed-upon solutions to those impacts. We recognize that the ongoing success of our projects relies upon the success we have in establishing the appropriate, respectful relationships with First Nations.
