Ted Dew-Jones, letter to Victoria News, October 22, 2010 6:00 AM
University of Victoria oceanography professor Jack Littlepage, who wrote one chapter of my book Victoria’s Sewage Circus, points out that “we should be promoting our system as one of the most efficient and environmentally sound systems in North America.”
Nobody knows more about it.
To change to land-based secondary sewage treatment plants would be environmentally backwards. The proposal to do so is based on lack of knowledge.
Such a proposal does not yet take account of the environmental and health damage that the building and operating of land-based plants would cause.
The politicians will die but the environmental and financial damage will go on generation after generation for the change is irreversible. Environment Minister Barry Penner is out of his depth. Must we and our environment all suffer?
