LETTERS: Question of quality


Here is what the City of White Rock sent out in their City Hall Insider news bulletin:


Here is what the City of White Rock sent out in their City Hall Insider news bulletin:

“Notice of Upcoming Work at Everall and Goggs: The City will be taking the first steps towards the construction of a new well for our water system later this month. This is just one of the many actions that the City is taking to ensure that we continue to deliver high quality water to the residents of White Rock.”

Well, you could have fooled me.

I was not aware that they were currently delivering “high quality water” to the residents of White Rock. How can you continue to do something if you haven’t been doing it in the first place? Did the arsenic and manganese disappear overnight?

Please let me know, and I will stop buying bottled water.

The final paragraph of this bulletin is: “No work will start on this project before the decision to award the contract arises at the October 24 Council Meeting. Should Council decide to award this contract, work will begin at the site on Everall and Goggs nearing the end of October.”

So what happens if they do not award the contract at their Oct. 24 meeting? Is the project cancelled?

Lynda Hornby, White Rock
