South East Kelowna Irrigation District Public information

The issue of importance begins at 07:08 of the report.

This is an interesting story. 

Toby Pike is the manager of SEKID. I believe that referendum should have been approved by the people. Their annual costs would have been lower and they would have enjoyed the benefit of clean water much sooner. 

SEKID has the same problem we do: small volume of domestic water is delivered to customers through agricultural irrigation pipes. Toby put his finger on the problem  "it doesn't make sense to treat all of that water". They will do total separation with domestic customers receiving well water and untreated raw water will be used for irrigation through the existing system. 

How come this simple (but expensive) solution did not gain support in our neck of the woods? If we must spend money spend it on the right projects. Instead we wasted a lot of taxpayers' dollars.
