Harewood flood zone endangers students

To the Editor,

Re: Dam remediation moves forward, July 17.

I am curious as to what volume of water each dam holds. How many hectares of land are under threat? If the dams are that fragile, why didn’t they collapse in the 1946 earthquake?

Why bus Cedar students to a hazardous area? They should bus John Barsby Secondary School students to a safe area like Cedar Community Secondary School.
