Battle River Coal-Fired Generating Station

The Battle River Coal-Fired Generating Station is located approximately 200 kilometres southeast of Edmonton on the banks of the Battle River and is a major employer of people living in the farming communities surrounding it. Water for the Battle River Generating Station is supplied by a reservoir created in 1954 by a 12 metre high dam located on the Battle River. Environmental Highlights Battle River works with mining company Westmoreland Coal Company to ensure that the mined land is returned to levels of productivity that are either equivalent to, or better than what existed prior to mining. Battle River has received its registration with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) model for environmental managements systems under ISO 14001.
