The Greater Moncton Sewerage Commission (GMSC) announced today that its 2013 annual general meeting (AGM) will be held on Friday, March 21, beginning at 11 a.m. in the Riverview Town Hall council chambers, 30 Honour House Court.

After a very active 2013, Commission members and GMSC staff are looking forward to updating the community on what was achieved over the course of the year and what is on the horizon, including a major multimillion-dollar upgrade to the GMSC’s wastewater treatment plant in order to meet new federal regulations. The upgrade will be one of the largest municipal infrastructure projects in Greater Moncton’s history.

“Over the last few years, the GMSC has reinforced its focus on ensuring public accountability and transparency,” said Winston Pearce, Commission Chair. “We look forward to this opportunity to interact with our community partners and ratepayers and to highlight how we are working to achieve these objectives while continuing to ensure meaningful environmental stewardship that will have a positive impact for our community.”

The AGM will feature presentations by Commission members and committees with opportunity for questions from the public and media. Financial results for 2013 will also be released at that time.

The Greater Moncton Sewerage Commission was established in 1983 to support the wastewater collection and treatment needs of the Dieppe, Moncton and Riverview tri-community. Since then, it has developed a 30-kilometre collection network and a treatment facility to best deliver on this mandate. It has also become a leader in the reuse of biosolids through the generation of type “AA” compost (the highest grade currently achieved in Canada) as opposed to disposal in a landfill site. The organization is now positioning itself to further upgrade its facilities to provide an enhanced secondary treatment approach that will allow it to meet recently introduced mandatory federal regulations prior to the 2020 deadline.
