CRD sewage plan not credible

Re: CRD seeks alternative to sludge plant at Hartland (News, July 31)

In this enlightening story, Capital Regional District liquid waste management committee chair Denise Blackwell is quoted as saying, “The plan is the plan. We need to get on with it.”

Is this the plan that is shortsighted and will only last 12 years, or the plan that has requests for proposals issued for a site that is unavailable?

Is this the plan that will have inadequate resource recovery, or will continue to discharge partially treated sewage at Clover Point (in heavy rain) and not deal at all with toxins from storm water?

Is this the plan that has ignored the possibility of innovative technology and has not undergone a cost-benefit analysis? Is this the plan that cannot be justified by any credible scientific evidence?

Never mind. The plan is the plan. We need to get on with it.
