What is the plan should something go wrong at Shawnigan?

Unless the dumping of soil in the Shawnigan Lake watershed is stopped, it appears inevitable this water source will become unsafe to drink.

Dear Premier Christy Clark:

 

Unless the dumping of toxic soil in the Shawnigan Lake watershed is stopped, it appears inevitable that this water source will become unsafe to drink.

Since the provincial government has approved this initiative, can you please tell me:

1. What is the plan for providing drinking water for the residents of Shawnigan Lake and all 12,000 people who drink from this aquifer?

2. What is the current estimated cost of this project?

3. When will this work begin?

Thanks so much,

 

Brian Costello
