Gaps in Hartland sludge option

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

It is frustrating to all taxpayers that $50 million has been spent in consultant fees and staff time over seven years on the Capital Regional District sewage treatment scheme.

There is no agreed plan for the treatment and sludge disposal.

Saanich Coun. Judy Brownoff, as chair of the CRD core area liquid waste management committee for several years, believes that we should move forward with the Hartland sludge plant.

Can she tell us:

1. Why should an extra $41 million be spent for the 18-kilometres pipeline and pump stations to get sewage sludge to Hartland?

2. What specific assessments of pipeline failure risks and costs have been requested by and reported to the liquid waste committee?
