Morning Star Newsclips - In case you missed them.

Note that only one of those six projects deals with domestic water issues: Domestic Distribution for $9.8 million. All other projects, costing $58.5 million deal with the agricultural system.

Of the $66.2 millions spent to date a full $48.6 million was spent on the agricultural system for a total of $107 million. I wonder what we could have achieved with that money if it was spent on the domestic system. Stay tuned!

Do you find it a reasonable investment to continue spending huge sums of money to continue irrigating crops with expensive filtered water? Keep reading this blog for potentially more sensible solutions.

In the meantime check out the physical characteristics of our three major water supplies. Of special interests are the respective Turbidity Indices of the three sources. Which of the sources would you prefer for your domestic supply on that one index alone? Remember, turbidity determines the degree of necessary treatment!

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.
