The Case for Regulated Water Companies

Private water and wastewater utility ownership and management is an increasingly viable solution for communities navigating the challenges of providing safe, reliable utility services.

Closing the Infrastructure Gap

water pipe sectionMany community utilities are grappling with the complex issues of aging infrastructure, rising operational costs, and increasingly stringent regulatory and environmental requirements. In fact, the US Environmental Protection Agency estimates $472.6 Billion in additional water infrastructure investment will be required over the next 20 years. Managing this scale of investment and risk requires specialized experience and expertise.

Water and Wastewater Utilities Are Regulated

Virtually all private utility systems are regulated by government mandate, and regulation touches every aspect of systems design, operation, and service delivery, including the setting of user rates.

Water and wastewater utilities are monopolies by nature, but are strictly regulated to ensure services meet jurisdictional standards and rates are fair and reasonable. Communities always have a voice in the operation of their utilities, whether public or private.NAWC Logo

The Corix Advantage

At Corix, we believe in building strong community relationships to deliver long-term, cost effective, and efficient essential utility services. Our growing list of water systems is a direct result of matching the right resources – human, financial, technological – to local requirements.

We’re Local

As our name suggests, Corix is a group of companies, who leverage shared economies and efficiencies, but provide localized services through regional and state operations. Local operations are backed-up by regional and national teams, which provides operational redundancy and risk mitigation in emergencies, such as severe weather events.

So choosing Corix brings the full breadth of our North American resources, expertise, and on-the-ground know-how to your local utility.


Our People Are Everything

We take great pride in our greatest strength – our people. Our North American team numbers over 800 professionals working in all areas of utility infrastructure management. And we’re proud to have one of North America’s largest private workforces of qualified water and wastewater systems operators and technicians.

Our lean and agile management, coupled with locally focused operations, lets us take advantage of human resources and efficiencies simply unavailable to smaller utilities. Even our smallest systems have the support of industry leading professionals in areas such as finance, regulation, technology, engineering, safety, and environment.

Investing in our people never stops, and we ensure all our teams are continually trained in the latest operational, safety, and environmental standards and protocols.

Our Purpose — "We help people enjoy a better life and communities thrive." — inspires our people to care for the communities they serve. Our Core Values of Safety, Integrity, Connection, and Excellence, underpin our daily activities, and we apply them consistently across all operations.

Utilities is Our Only Business

With over 20 years of experience in the utility industry, Corix knows community utilities.

Water and wastewater are at the core of our business, and unlike some of our competitors, we offer these services separately or combined. The ability to bundle services can produce significant operating efficiencies and economies of scale. As a result, most of our customers enjoy one-supplier water and wastewater services.

We also own and operate several systems that enjoy multi-utility services – typically water and wastewater together with one or more of gas, electricity, or geothermal. And we’re always looking for new, innovative ways to provide essential utility services to the communities we serve.

We Invest for the Long-Term

A reliable, stable source of financing and capital is key to maintain utility services, implement major system improvements, or build new infrastructure. Corix has that financial expertise, with access to non-traditional sources of capital, and the ability to unlock the equity value of existing capital assets. We’re able do that because we’re backed by the British Columbia Investment Management Corp. (BCI), one of North America’s largest asset management companies.
