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.
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.
