Re: “Roundabouts good, now what about water?” (Citizen letters, June 3)
The author, of the article does not have his facts straight.
Nobody has been elected “to get off the pot and raise the weir”.
The weir and the operation thereof is under an agreement between the province of British Columbia and Catalyst Paper in Crofton.
Under said agreement the Crofton mill also treats and supplies drinking water to the town of Crofton.
The Town of Lake Cowichan obtains its drinking water upstream from the weir.
Raising the weir would mostly benefit the Crofton mill, indirectly the town of Crofton and the fish in the river.
The CVRD has been trying to take over the agreement between the province and Catalyst Paper.
