MONCTON, NEW BRUNSWICK -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- Residents in the tri-community area of Moncton, Riverview and Dieppe today celebrated the official opening of the Tower Road Dam and Reservoir in Turtle Creek, which now ensures that residents have continued access to safe, clean drinking water.
Built along Tower Road, this new 1.5-kilometer-long by 20-meter-high earth-filled dam and 250-hectare reservoir will provide the communities with an additional 16.5 million cubic meters of water. The original dam and reservoir, designed to service approximately 100,000 people, had outgrown its design capacity as the Greater Moncton Area has seen tremendous growth in recent years. The new dam and reservoir can now serve close to double the population, meaning a significant improvement in the ability of the region to provide for both current and future demands for clean drinking water.
-- The Government of Canada contributed up to a maximum of $9.79 million to this project from the Major Infrastructure Component of the 2007 Building Canada Fund. -- The Government of New Brunswick also contributed up to $9.79 million to the project. -- The City of Moncton provided the remaining funding of the total estimated project cost of $43.2 million.
"We are proud to support this significant infrastructure project that will ensure that the Greater Moncton Area's water supply meets the needs of its growing population. Our Government's investment in initiatives like the Tower Road Dam and Water Reservoir project clearly demonstrates our continued commitment to create jobs, growth and long-term prosperity for all Canadians."
The Honourable Rob Moore,
Regional Minister for New Brunswick and Minister of State (Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency), on behalf of the Honourable Denis Lebel, Minister of Infrastructure, Communities, and Intergovernmental Affairs and Minister of the Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec
"Today's celebration of the official opening of the Tower Road Dam and Reservoir project in Turtle Creek means residents of the Greater Moncton region can continue to have the confidence in the safety of their drinking water. Our investment in this project shows our government's commitment to the economy and the environment."
The Honourable Bruce Fitch
Minister of Economic Development of New Brunswick, on behalf of the Honourable Paul Robichaud, Minister responsible for the Regional Development Corporation
"The City of Moncton is very proud of its water supply infrastructure and with the completion of this major project, we secure a clean, plentiful source of water for the future. Expanding our water supply has been a major undertaking for the City of Moncton and made possible through our federal/provincial infrastructure funding program."

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...

In his session at DevOps Summit, Frank Bunger, VP of Customer Success at ScriptRock, will discuss how this cathartic moment will propel the DevOps movement from such stuff as dreams are made on to a prac...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
