ARROW Utilities is guided by an internal team of engineers, communicators, researchers, and analysts that bring decades of experience to its operations. ARROW Utilities boosts a team of nearly 60 staff working from their headquarters in Fort Saskatchewan.

Board of Directors

ARROW Utilities’ Administration and Procedures Bylaw requires that each member municipality appoint a member of their Council to the ARROW Utilities’ Board for a recommended four-year term.

There are two distinct roles and responsibilities for Directors:

  1. To represent their municipality by communicating to the Board on wastewater issues affecting their community. It is also expected that the Director will explain Board decisions and policies to their councils.
  2. To act as a corporate director of ARROW Utilities, whose duty is to consider issues and make decisions that are in the best interest of the entire organization. This duty arises even if the position is in the best interest of ARROW Utilities and may not be in the best interest or be supported by their municipal Council.

The Board may, from time to time, create committees to address matters it feels require more attention than can be provided by the entire Board. Members are assigned to committees on a voluntary basis. As of March 17, 2023, we are pleased to introduce the following ARROW Utilities Board members:
