Really Big Water Projects

Water plays a big part in ReNew Canada’s 2010 list of the nation’s Top 100 infrastructure projects, which represents over $68 billion in investment.

Taking the number one spot again this year is Hydro-Québec’s $6.5-billion Romaine Complex A Renewable Energy Project, a 1,550-megawatt project which involves four hydropower generating stations with an annual output of eight terawatt hours. Another Hydro-Québec endeavour, the Eastmain-1-A/Sarcelle/Rupert project, the largest construction site in Quebec. Partial diversion of the Rupert River is in progress for this $5-billion hydroelectric project.

Other notable water-related projects include Manitoba’s Wuskwatim Generation Project (#6 – $1.6 billion), Hamilton’s Woodward Avenue Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion and Upgrades (#24 – $700 million), and the Red River Floodway Expansion (#29 – $665 million).
