Our objectives are based on the the value of the water licenses through a number potential opportunities including:
Our intention is to always conduct business with a high level of integrity, and our management strives to:
To become the predominant water supplier partner of the greater Calgary region through delivering excellence and efficiency in utility solutions.
To be responsible for the implementation of private infrastructure and utility services in the Area, in order to achieve optimal financial and community value for privately owned land.
Through GRIDS, we seek to expand from its current asset base to a larger portfolio of land holdings, community, commercial and industrial developments and water utility infrastructure throughout the Calgary area. Not only are we proposing to be the regional water services provider for the area, but we intend to be at the forefront of the development of the major growth corridors of the region. It is the intention of the Partnership to recognize, encourage and capture many of the opportunities available.
We will organize and implement a regional water servicing system in the area, thus providing a water servicing solution for numerous regions surrounding Calgary. These solutions are expected to create a platform from which we will achieve a stronghold for proprietary land developments that will guide and foster the growth of the regional economy and population. The demand for a regional water servicing and development strategy has been amplified by the amount of growth of the region in recent years. Ultimately, the imminent ongoing growth in the Calgary and surrounding area will drive the GRIDS plan through multiple stages, over many years.
World's Fresh Water
Canada has about 20-25% of the world’s fresh water supply.
Canada's Water Usage
Canada uses the 2nd most water of the 29 OECD members – per capita water consumption is 65% above the OCED average.
Canada's Water Supply
Alberta has only 2% of Canada’s fresh water supply, most of which is in the North.
AB's Water Supply
The south Saskatchewan River Basin accounts for 58% of all allocated water in Alberta.
Our goal is to create strategic alliances in land development as an excellent way for us to leverage their water licence holdings. Raw land is developed to meet the growing needs of society. It is converted from undivided agricultural land to developed land through the addition of infrastructure and services necessary for the land to meet the residential, commercial and industrial needs of a community, such as water, power, heat/gas, cable/telephone, and infrastructure including roads, sidewalks, streetlights, sewers and pipelines.
Prior to being granted an approval to begin to work on the land, a developer must demonstrate the ability to complete the project with the required services and infrastructure. As a result of the recent Moratorium, there have been a number of real estate developments that have been denied approval due to a lack of water resources. RWELP is in the enviable position of owning abundant water licences. The general process of getting water to a development is as follows:
The use of proven technology and conservation practices can potentially double the utilization of an acre foot of water. There are many forms of water use technology presently being used throughout North America that have not been either considered or implemented in Alberta. Water recycling and efficiencies provide a two fold advantage. Firstly, they reduce water consumption which effectively increases the total volume of water available. Secondly, they can minimize the requirement for treated effluent storage, if used for purposes other than irrigation. In all, more people can be serviced by an efficient regional system using the same volume of water.
