Re: "Water main break forces evacuation in Oak Bay," Nov. 21.
We have serious infrastructure problems with water mains throughout Oak Bay and probably the rest of the region. Workers seem unable to repair these problems within a reasonable time, creating serious costs for taxpayers.
Money that should be spent on rectifying these inadequacies will now be wasted on what will be a redundant system for sewage treatment, which will include large pipes travelling throughout many municipalities.
What makes anyone think that catastrophic problems will not occur with this ridiculous plan? Crises will arise that will not only be exorbitantly costly, but dangerous to human health.
Is the tail wagging the dog here?
