Re: "Foes renew battle against sewage megaproject," Nov. 10.
Just as we had condo building standards and codes forced on a West Coast environment they were completely unsuitable for, so we are again faced with another astronomical bill for bureaucratically established sewage treatment standards that are totally inappropriate for Victoria.
Those qualified in the field of sewage treatment are almost unanimous in their condemnation of the plan to flush the best part of a billion dollars down the toilet for no measurable environmental benefit.
If the upcoming meeting really is the last opportunity for saner heads to prevail, we can only hope that the experts will finally be listened to, and not the unqualified politicians and bureaucrats pushing for this madness.
