​We are planning alterations to the perimeter fence surrounding the Rossdale Water Treatment Plant and the Rossdale and Bellamy substations.

Project details

Project details

These alterations are necessary to accommodate future land use in the area and maintain a safe site. As part of this project we will also be removing the existing guardhouse and constructing a new guardhouse in a different location to monitor access into the Rossdale Water Treatment Plant.

If approved, the project will involve:

  • Constructing a new guardhouse and gate for the Rossdale Water Treatment Plant and removing the existing guardhouse and gate.
  • Altering the fence line around the Rossdale Water Treatment Plant.
  • Constructing a new fence to enclose the Rossdale and Bellamy substations.

Rossdale Water Treatment Plant

Fence and guardhouse

If all necessary approvals are received we plan to begin work constructing the new guardhouse and fence in the fall of 2016 and expect construction to be finished in the summer of 2017.

Rossdale and Bellamy Substation

Fence alterations

In fall of 2017 we will apply to the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) for approval to alter the fence surrounding the Rossdale and Bellamy substations, including replacing a segment of the chain link fence with black chain link fence. If approved, the work will be completed in 2019.

Construction details

What to expect during construction

Construction noise

The work will create typical noise associated with construction. We will take measurements to ensurewe comply with the City of Edmonton's Community Standards Bylaw for Noise Control. If it is necessary to temporarily exceed acceptable noise levels, we will work with the City of Edmonton to obtain the necessary permits.

Hours of operation

We anticipate our hours of work for this project to be Monday to Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; however, occasional evening and weekend work may be required.

Road/Trail closures

No public road or trail closures are expected as part of this project.

Landscaping/Ground disturbance

We will work with archaeology experts for any ground disturbance work that occurs on this project as directed by Alberta Culture. All work areas disturbed by construction will be restored.

Work space

All work areas will be safe and secure. All construction activities will be in accordance with the City of Edmonton bylaws, occupational health and safety requirements, as well as our health, safety and environmental procedures and guidelines.
