No sewage plant in my backyard

Viewfield Road site for biosolids plant completely inappropriate

Re: Don’t pass sewage buck (Our View, May 15)

I have a suggestion for anyone who would suggest that locating a biosolids treatment facility on Viewfield Road is “probably the best of a hard situation:” Let’s build this facility right next to your house, and less than two blocks from where your children go to school.

Esquimalt Mayor Barb Desjardins’ suggestion of a site on Burnside Road farmland may not be an ideal option. But let’s be clear about two things: Locating this facility on Viewfield Road is completely inappropriate, and it is totally unacceptable to those who live, work and attend school in the communities surrounding this site.
