Delivering Community Services to Sun Rivers
From financing, designing, building and operating the community’s sustainable GeoExchange energy and water supply systems, to delivering ongoing municipal services such as snow removal, utility maintenance and customer billing, Corix is helping Sun Rivers create one of Canada’s most progressive and sustainable communities.
GeoExchange (Geothermal) Heating and Cooling
All residential and commercial buildings are heated and cooled utilizing GeoExchange. The GeoExchange loop field (installed by Corix) is treated as utility infrastructure and is owned by Corix. Residents pay a connection charge at the time of construction (similar to other utilities) and then a monthly fee to access the loop field. Larger building energy requirements such as Talasa are provided by a hybrid GeoExchange central energy plant.
Corix purchases electricity and natural gas from BC Hydro and FortisBC, respectively, and delivers to customers within the community.
Corix provides on-site storage and distribution of water obtained from the handling of the Tk’emlups te Secwepemc water treatment plant. This includes filtered and treated domestic water for use by residents and untreated water for outdoor irrigation through separate water mains.
Corix provides sewer services to all residences and commercial operations. Effluent is collected through Sun Rivers’ sewer mains, then distributed and treated at the wastewater treatment plant through a service agreement with the Tk’emlups te Secwepemc.
Corix is responsible for snow removal from roadways as well as the maintenance of roads, boulevards, street lights, fire hydrants and storm sewers.
Corix constructs, owns and maintains utility services, roads and curbs for all new development within the resort community. Construction services include:
- domestic and irrigation water systems

- sanitary sewer collection and lift stations
- storm sewer system
