A thank you is due to White Rock mayor and councillors for reversing the decision on disinfecting our water with chloramines.

There is no shame in having sober second thoughts after listening to your constituents and reading scientific information on the subject.

The City of White Rock’s put-on-hold plan to use chloramine – instead of chlorine, to disinfect its water system – was nothing other than an attempt to obscure from the public’s view the high levels of arsenic and manganese in the city’s well-sourced water. This, instead of taking bold, transparent actions to rectify the problem.
