Peterborough Utilities Group1 Open Position
For over 100 years, Peterborough residents have been relying on Peterborough Utilities for their water and electricity needs. Today our group of companies also develop and operate electricity generation, energy equipment rentals, and commercial metering services both in Peterborough and other areas of the Province. Riverview Park & Zoo began in 1933 with Ross Dobbin, the General Manager of the Peterborough Utilities Commission (PUC). He was given two alligators during an American Water Works Association conference in Florida. Over the next 30 years, orphaned and injured animals were donated and Riverview Park & Zoo was created. The facility grew in popularity within the community turning it into what it is today. Since the late 1960s, the PUC has assumed full responsibility of operations to provide a modest base funding, allowing us to remain free to the public every day. We are now the only free Canada's Accredited Zoo and Aquarium (CAZA) facility in Canada and feature over 40 animal species.
