LETTER: Juan de Fuca water under attack — 7 Comments

  1. As a victim of the Shirly water works empire I and many of my neighbors would be happy to tap into the Sooke reservoir water if (when) it is piped by Shirly. We are stuck with the CRD, the least they could do is provide basic services. There is more to life than moving excrement uphill.

  2. Item on Chek news, Sat Mar 5, 2016 re house fire on West Coast Road. Fire crews hampered by no fire hydrant. A couple of years ago a home burned completely here in East Sooke (Hensbro RD) because fire crews could not get pressure from 4-inch water pipe. Luckily no lives lost. How many others have there been? There must be stats available. It’s only a matter of time before a very tragic fire happens. Servicing with 8 inch water pipe into existing areas should be an absolute necessity. It should not require areas within JDF EA (or any other rural area for that matter) to be held to a higher standard, ie., 2/3rds vote for approval as opposed to 50% requirement for all other municpalities. Provision of water services should not be subject to approval. It should be a right.
