Focussing water debate

Re: Parksville water project. The only growth happening is in RDN and Parksville is in the middle. It appears from statistical research that Parksville’s population is declining. We need better filtration to service Parksville presently. The mega project for $37 million will make Parksville a purveyor of water to RDN development, especially Fairwinds. Parksville needs to have a solution for its residents. It certainly is nowhere near a $37 million solution presently proposed. All Parksville requires is better filtration. It would be more affordable to Parksville’s population. If RDN wants development they should have water strategy excluding Parksville taxpayers.
