Clarification of Parksville water forum date

The event is set for Wednesday, Sept. 16 at the Parksville Community and Conference Centre

The Oceanside Development and Construction Association (ODCA) is hosting a Water Sustainability Forum this week to talk about grey water, cisterns and their use.

In a story on page 3 Thursday about the forum, we may have caused some confusion about the date of the event.

The forum is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 16 at the Parksville Community and Conference Centre from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. If you plan to attend, the ODCA would appreciate an RSVP e-mail to odca@shaw.ca or a call to 250-586-2282.

The ODCA is bringing in two guest speakers for the event and provided this information about them:

Jamie Wallace of Jaan Designs is a landscape designer, perma-culture designer and consultant and has been working in the landscape industry for more than 28 years focusing on rain water harvesting.

Ed Hoeppner of Aquarian Systems Inc has more than 25 years experience designing and building houses and more than 10 years in researching and developing innovative water management systems, including grey water.
