For immediate release
TransAqua announces 2019 compost toilet opening
RIVERVIEW, N.B. – TransAqua, the Greater Moncton Wastewater Commission,
announced today that its 2019 compost toilets at various locations along the
Petitcodiac River within the communities of Moncton, Dieppe and Riverview will be
opening between the beginning and middle of May.
It is necessary for the ground to be dry before a heavy vacuum truck can used to
remove water from the toilet basins to minimize damage to the grass and
trail. Runoff water seeps into the toilet tubs and freezes into a big block of ice over
winter and spring that must melt. Because of this, TransAqua may be able to open
some compost toilets at the beginning of May and we expect all to be opened closer
to the middle of May.
Please sign up to receive updates and information from TransAqua at
www.transaqua.ca. Residents may also contact TransAqua at 387-7977.
TransAqua, the Greater Moncton Wastewater Commission, (www.transaqua.ca) 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 31
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 high
quality compost as opposed to disposal in a landfill site.
