International environmental conference to be held in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada, from June 24-27, 2007

    MONCTON, April 25 /CNW/ - While climate change has been at the forefront
of the political agenda recently it is also crystal clear that, in addition to
clean air, the well being of Canada and of our planet also requires that
water, wastewater and the resulting biosolids need to be managed more
seriously, and in a focused, coordinated and cooperative manner.
    With the objective of moving forward the Canadian and global
environmental agenda the Greater Moncton Sewerage Commission, in conjunction
with the International Water Association, the Water Environment Federation,
the Canadian Association on Water Quality, the Université de Moncton, and
others(1) has organized a World environmental conference entitled Moving
Forward: Wastewater Biosolids Sustainability: Technical, Managerial, and
Public Synergy, which will be held in Moncton, N.B., on June 24-27, 2007. This
conference will be held jointly with the 4th Canadian Organic Residuals and
Biosolids Management Conference.
    The conference, which is the first of its kind to be ever held globally,
will feature global experts and speakers from various organizations and
countries including the following:
    The United Nations, the World Health Organization, and Argentina,
Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, Columbia, Denmark, France, Germany,
India, Iran, Italy, Japan, Czech Republic, Kenya, Korea, Mexico, New Zealand,
Norway, Peru, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland,
Taiwan, Turkey, United Kingdom and USA.
    "This will be a superior conference, bringing to Canada, for the first
time, the world's leading experts in the wastewater biosolids industry. The
conference is one that can't be missed by Canadian municipalities, provincial,
territorial and federal departments and politicians that are involved or
concerned about these environmental issues" said Ronald J. LeBlanc, conference
chair and chairman of the Greater Moncton Sewerage Commission.
    The conference is also intended for operators, managers, administrators,
scientists, researchers, regulators, and other stakeholders who will benefit
from knowing each other's challenges through our "Big Picture" approach for
the conference.
    Presentations given by internationally renowned experts will deal with
management, regulatory, scientific, research, and technical issues as well as
public relations.
    While the conference will address serious issues, the Organizing
Committee is also committed to making sure that delegates and their guests get
a taste of Maritime hospitality, food and tradition. To that end, various
local tours for delegates together with a companion and social program are
also planned.
    A copy of the Conference highlights and Registration brochure is included
in PDF format, and hard copies will be sent to media outlets by post.
