SARM Releases Got Gravel? Report
The Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM) is pleased to announce the release the Got Gravel? Aggregate Management Strategies for Rural Municipalities in Saskatchewan report. In August 2015, SARM commissioned CPP Environmental to research aggregate management in Saskatchewan and make recommendations to develop long-term gravel reserves for rural municipalities (RMs).
“The municipal road network in Saskatchewan is more than 165,000 kilometres,” said SARM President Ray Orb. “Gravel is therefore a critical resource to RMs, as they seek to maintain, upgrade and build new roads to serve both ratepayers and industry.”
The report outlines ten recommendations in total, all of which are intended as steps towards securing gravel reserves for use in the long-term future. The full report can be found at https://sarm.ca/pub/+pub/File/Policy%20-%20Whats%20Trending/GotGravel_SARM_FinalReport_26_05_2016.pdf.
“SARM looks forward to continuing to work with the Government of Saskatchewan to implement the recommendations made in the report to ensure sustainable gravel reserves for the province into the future,” said President Orb.
