LETTER: CRD director has ally in water battle

Re: Juan de Fuca gets nod for mediation (News, Nov. 15)

I am pleased to see Capital Regional District director Mike Hicks will have a say about having piped water to the Juan de Fuca area.

It is too bad the CRD board is outraged that the province is stepping in.

Former municipal affairs minister Dan Campbell said when he formed the regional district years ago, what they got is not what he thought should be done.

If any of your readers to get a history of the Greater Victoria water system, they should get a copy of the book Bringing Water to Victoria, an illustrated History 1843-1915 by Charles W. Tolman. I got my copy at the Sooke Region Museum.
