National Public Works Week - Rosemère's Public Works Team Invites Its Residents to Come Meet Them on Back-to-the-Earth Day
ROSEMÈRE, May 23, 2019 – As part of National Public Works Week, which runs until May 25, the Town of Rosemère is inviting residents to meet with Public Works employees on Back-to-the-Earth Day, which will take place on May 25, 8 a.m. - 2 p.m., in the Town Hall parking lot. A special "National Public Works Week" booth will be set up on site so that Rosemerites will have a better understanding of the role and achievements of its Public Works team.
"In addition to being an essential part of our administrative system, our Public Works team carries out projects that contribute to the influence and reputation of our Town, particularly in terms of environmental matters. In Rosemère, our environmental awareness prompts us to develop innovative and avant-garde initiatives," stated Rosemère Mayor Eric Westram.
In fact, a number of environmental actions have been initiated by the Public Works Department, including the installation of an artesian well, in the yard of the municipal garage, which is used to water plants during the summer months; the use of recycled glass during concrete work operations; the recovery of some of the water from new splashpads; the launch of the green patrol; the installation of "layers" around various trees to hydrate them with rainwater; the installation of an Aqua Swirl rainwater treatment system (operating through hydrodynamic separation) in the municipal yard in order to better treat surface water; the creation of weather stations in the Town to make real time adjustments to the amount of salt to be used during abrasive spreading operations, etc.
"The actions taken by the Public Works Department are at the very heart of the services offered to residents. The quality of the services we provide is a constant priority," emphasized Simon Coulombe, Rosemère's Director of Public Works.
