Parksville water details missing

I was reading again the letters to the editor on piping water down the mountain. Two things get left out of this proposal every time it gets in there:

• surface water, no matter where it is collected and piped from, must be treated according to international, national and provincial standards so the treatment plant is a given.

• yes, we have a supply issue in the long term that is not addressed by the treatment plant.

One of the issues here is that we do not own the watershed, so would have to enter into some kind of agreement with Island Timberlands for the access to the land — no cost estimates or discussion of Island Timberlands’ position on this are ever mentioned.

This is why we need a regional water board with broad based representation to address the long term issues.
