Water quality an important issue
What an article (“ Water woes and more in Cupids,” March 22 edition of The Compass) on the state of water in these towns. I’m glad we are getting water from a pond high on a hill overlooking our town, where not much can get into it except by nature.
All this brings me back to a time when we had a study done in this area on our water systems. There was a consensus at the time that a water operator or one highly educated or trained person would oversee the operations of our water systems. This is not uncommon since it is done on the west coast of our province, from Cow Head to St. Paul’s.
The issue of safe drinking water is far too important not give it the best possible attention available and be treated as such. Towns do their best. But someone has to be responsible for making sure our water supplies are protected and our systems are maintained in a professional manor.
This can be done. If a number of towns worked together this can work as it does in other areas.
