Water, water and more water.

In order to better understand the Master Water Plan of 2002 it is worth to take a look at least at the Executive Summary of the plan. Page 9 has the following statement:


The future irrigation system will function in a very similar manner to the original VID irrigation system, constructed in the 1960s. The primary difference is that surplus water will be used as a raw water supply to the new Middleton Mountain water treatment plant.

Based on the low operating cost for the system and the generally good condition of the components, the GVWU should be able to meet the goal of providing irrigation water at a competitive rate. Long term financial planning, however, needs to consider the eventual replacement of irrigation system components.

Pages 72-74 illustrate financials and timelines of the plan.

Below are scans of the PR selling us the plan in 2002. It is not easy to defend the present actions of Vernon!

I have been a resident of Coldstream since 1976. I have had 15 years of experience on Council, 3 years as Mayor. As a current Councillor I am working to achieve fair water and sewer rates and to ensure that taxpayers get fair treatment. The current direction regarding water supply is unsustainable and I am doing all I can to get the most cost effective water supply possible.
