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

Project details

Project details

In 2018, EPCOR finished construction of the guardhouse, and made changes to the gate and fence at the Rossdale Water Treatment Plant. The new guardhouse location improves our ability to control access into the Rossdale Water Treatment Plant. To accommodate these changes, changes to the fence around the Rossdale and Bellamy substations are also needed. For more information, please view the project update notice.

Rossdale and Bellamy Substation

Fence alterations

To accommodate changes to the Rossdale Water Treatment Plant, a new section of fence is needed to secure the east side of the Rossdale and Bellamy substations. The new portion of fence shown from points A to B on the map, will be black chain link mounted on concrete blocks to limit ground disturbances. To keep the fences electrically separated, a small segment of fiberglass fence will be installed at point A. Please note that the planned fence alignment has changed slightly since we first notified you in September 2016.

As a part of this project we are also planning to replace the silver chain link fence from point B to C on the map with a black chain link fence to match the existing fence around the Rossdale Water Treatment Plant.

EPCOR plans to complete the construction of the fence from points A to B on the map in early 2019. The fence alterations from points B to C on the map are planned for the spring of 2021.

Construction details

What to expect during construction

Construction noise

The work will create typical noise associated with construction. We will take measurements to ensure we 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

No ground disturbances are expected as a result of the fence addition and replacement. If this changes we will work with archaeological experts, as directed by Alberta Culture and Tourism, for any ground disturbance work.

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 EPCOR's health, safety and environmental procedures and guidelines.

Power Outages

We do not anticipate any power service interruptions from this work.
