Re: "Science vs. perception on sewage issue," Nov. 18.
According to the letter-writer's science, it appears discharging 129 million litres of screened sewage per day into the strait is just fine, since it is 99.9 per cent water.
Would it not make more sense, then, to put a treatment system in place to allow recycling this water in a manner to preclude, or minimize, discharging this volume at all? If you took this volume and costed it at your current billing rate, what would the value be?
Good fresh-water conservation and management may not be thought of as "science" as much as common sense.
