Inflated dam costs create controversy

By continuing to bandy about costs of remediation in the tens of millions of dollars simply promotes added and unneeded controversy.

To the Editor,

Re: Council approves dam remediation process, Letters, Oct. 24.

Despite the fact that the process should have happened almost a year ago, council is to be congratulated on its recent decision to move forward with a focus on remediation of the Colliery dams.

Sadly the community is still being bombarded with inflated costs. Krohn Crippen Berger’s report only looked at five options towards remediation, eliminating a number of others.

By continuing to bandy about costs of remediation in the tens of millions of dollars simply promotes added and unneeded controversy in efforts to save this valuable resource for future generations of Nanaimoites to enjoy.
