Emergency Meeting on Wastewater
Please Note: This event is FREE, however, when registering below, please select “Cheque” as payment method.
MNL is holding an emergency meeting on municipal wastewater management on Friday, September 6, 2019 in St. John’s.
Our members still have concerns regarding the Wastewater System Effluent Regulations (WSER) and their ability to be compliant with them without additional resources and time.
We have invited provincial and federal politicians and policy-makers to this meeting. The goals of the meeting are to:
- Provide municipal councillors with an opportunity to formally articulate their concerns and frustrations with the regulations, and the cost of compliance in particular;
- Create increased awareness on the limited capacity within our sector;
- Seek solutions including a commitment of more realistic expectations and financial support for a province with our decreasing population and limited tax base.
This meeting is open to all MNL members including council representatives and staff and there is no fee to attend. If you are interested in speaking on a panel about the issues and challenges of WSER compliance in your municipality, please contact Deatra Walsh via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
