Last week I attended the Saskatchewan Water Action Network (SWAN) conference, an event organized for sharing ideas and action plans related to improving waste water management in Saskatchewan. The organizers invited me to attend as a liaison to the french media. If you speak French, you can listen to my interview with CBC here: Se concerter pour mieux traiter les eaux usées.

For those who do not speak french, here are some of the key points from the interview:

  • Saskatchewan is very lucky to have as much water as we do, but it is still a limited resource.
  • We need to learn from other provinces and countries to find new technologies for treating our waste waters.
  • We need to educate the public and government on new technologies that can save municipalities 50% on construction and repairs of existing systems.
  • Conferences like SWAN where technical people share ideas and meet with legislators are critical to our innovation.
