Wicks to head city water forum

Trevor Wicks has the experience needed to get the job done, says city

People with questions or concerns about the water in Oceanside area are invited to a presentation in Parksville next Tuesday.

“It is in your interest to become informed when tens of millions of dollars of your money is being allocated to upgrade a part of one water system,” said Trevor Wicks who will be doing the presentation.

Wicks has been an outspoken critic of the Arrowsmith Water Service and what he calls their lack of big picture planning in reference to the planned new river intake and treatment facility.

He has previously said since the AWS’s Arrowsmith Dam only catches 1.5 per cent of the watershed and there are numerous competing water-use plans, they shouldn’t be the overseeing organization.

Wicks said he will enlighten people with his many years of involvement in water issues and offer an independent viewpoint.

Admission is by donation for the talk at 7 p.m. Tuesday, October 25, at the Parksville Community and Conference Centre.
