Readers Write - Sparkle -- Invitation!

Hello All,

Dave Facey, new member of the SPrKL (Society for the Protection of Kalamalka Lake) executive and resident of Kekuli Bay Estates recently brought the matter of a proposed compost facility to be developed above the present landfill (the dump) to SPrKL's attention. Dave and his neighbours have experienced the unpleasant odours coming from the nearby Biosolids Plant, hence they are concerned that the same problem may arise if a compost plant were to be developed above the dump. Further, residents in the west side of Coldstream may well be affected by possible odours carried from the proposed facility by the prevailing winds.

SPrKL is concerned not only about a possible odour problem affecting Coldstream residents, but more so about the possibility of leachate from the proposed composting process finding its way into Kalamalka Lake. Is the top of a hill between two lakes an appropriate place for a composting plant?

I have attached the invitation that was sent to Dave and his neighbours, and I will fwd the information about the proposed composting plant in another email to follow shortly.

Please attend the meeting tomorrow evening, Thursday November 25th from 7 to 9pm at the Regional District (NORD) office on the corner of Aberdeen Rd and Hwy 6 to find out more about the proposal, raise any concerns, and ask questions.

Louise Christie

Nice we're charged to bring brush there and then they are going to sell it back to us too!
