Sheep River Regional Utility Corporation supplies wholesale water to the Town of Black Diamond, Town of Turner Valley, and Foothills County.
Through review of different governance and operations models, it was determined that highest benefit would be realized if governance and operations of SRRUC was provided through its member municipalities, opposed to a third-party contractor, for a variety of reasons:
- Increased efficiency between administrative and operational services
- Cost effective service delivery
- Increased coverage for vacations, on-call and emergency responses
The SRRUC Board continually reviews management and operations needs to ensure that benefits are achieved. Foothills County currently provides management and operational services for SRRUC. Transition of management and operations has no impact on the ownership and/or control of SRRUC.
