EPCOR Saskatchewan Water Partners Named Preferred Proponent for City of Regina's New Wastewater Treatment Plant

The City of Regina recently named EPCOR Saskatchewan Water Partners the preferred proponent for the contract to design-build, finance, maintain and operate a new wastewater treatment plant. This is the largest DBFMO of a wastewater treatment plant undertaken in Canada and is supported by funding from P3 Canada. The City's initial budget for this project is CDN$224 million.

The consortium consists of EPCOR Water Services Inc., Gracorp Capital Advisors, Graham, Lockerbie Stanley Inc./AECON and Stantec. To meet new environmental regulations, Graham and Lockerbie Stanley Inc. will design-build and execute the capital improvements to the existing wastewater treatment plant, with Graham acting as lead. The scope of work includes upgrading the existing sewage treatment plant to accommodate the increased flows and higher effluent discharge standards. It also includes the addition of new bioreactors and secondary clarifiers, upgrades throughout the existing facilities to the primary and tertiary treatment, as well as solids treatment and biosolids management.

EPCOR will commence operations and management of the Regina facility this summer and will continue this role for the next 30 years. Construction will begin over the next few months, with the new sewage treatment plant to meet new environmental regulations by 2016.
