​About the Rossdale site

The Rossdale site includes the Rossdale and Bellamy Substations, the Rossdale Water Treatment Plant, a guardhouse, and other EPCOR-owned facilities.

Rossdale and Bellamy Substations

A substation is a part of the electrical system that connects two or more powerlines. The Rossdale and Bellamy substations convert electricity from higher voltage (power lines transmission lines) to lower voltages that can be safely distributed​ to homes and businesses in the area. 

Rossdale Water Treatment Plant

The Rossdale Water Treatment Plant is one of Edmonton's two water treatment plants, and has been providing water to citizens of Edmonton since 1903. Water from the North Saskatchewan River is treated, tested and stored on-site in reservoirs until is needed. Clean drinking water is then pumped out through the transmission/distribution system to homes and businesses throughout the city.

See the water treatment process in action.

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.

Contact us

​​​We believe in listening to and engaging stakeholders. Community input and involvement is an important part of our decision-making and we want to hear what you think about our initiatives.
