ASGA Launches Communications Campaign Go back

Tuesday, June 5, 2018

The Alberta Sand and Gravel Association (ASGA) launched a public communication campaign to share their position on Rocky View County’s (RVC) DRAFT Aggregate Resource Plan (ARP) and provide general information about the aggregate industry in Alberta.

The campaign began on June 5, 2018, with a presentation to the RVC Policy and Priorities Committee (PPC).

The ASGA is using multiple methods to ensure the widespread community within the Calgary region have access to relevant, accurate information about the state of the draft ARP, and aggregate operations in Alberta, before the ARP goes to RVC Council for review in the fall of 2018.

The ASGA’s communication campaign includes:

A presentation to RVC Policies and Priorities Commission;

An ARP-specific webpage on the ASGA website;

Social media outreach;

Fact sheets about aggregate extraction activities and the industry as a whole; and

Local newspaper advertisements that share fact-based data about the aggregate industry in Alberta.

Aggregate Facts

Did you know that for straight gravel hauls with minimal traffic, the price of aggregate increases $0.15 per tonne for every mile from the extraction site? Close to market reserves is one way the aggregate industry reduces environmental footprints and risk of accident.
