​Working With Our Neighbours

We believe in the importance of being a good neighbour. We're continually looking for ways to engage with Gold Bar community members. Your feedback helps us improve operations at the Gold Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant while still meeting Edmonton's wastewater needs.

​How we're engaging with the community

We have many ongoing engagement opportunities for members of the community to share their feedback and thoughts on the Gold Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant. See how you can get involved.

  Project engagement

For proposed and upcoming projects, we send notices and updates to community members, go door-to-door to speak with them and host open houses to share our plans and get feedback that helps inform our planning process.

Learn more about our current Gold Bar projects.

  Community meetings

Twice per year, we organize and host meetings with the Gold Bar Community Liaison Committee (CLC), whose members include 2 representatives from each of the 5 communities near our Gold Bar plant—Gold Bar, Capilano, Fulton Place, Highlands and Beverly Heights.

These meetings are an opportunity for us to share information on our plant operations, gather feedback on our projects and respond to questions. Through this relationship with the CLC, we also establish communication with the community leagues for these 5 communities as well as other interested groups and individuals.

  Community events

We also attend community events, such as Highlandia and the Greater Hardisty Community Day, when possible to share educational information about wastewater treatment, talk with community members about our projects and operations, and answer any questions they may have.

  Plant tours

We have a longstanding partnership with RiverWatch to support student learning. Over the past 18 years, more than 50,000 students have toured through our Gold Bar plant. In the summer of 2018, Gold Bar was part of RiverWatch's new River Ambassador Program, which brought community members by our plant as part of an on-water learning experience.
