Blue Frog sys­tem waste of money

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

Some fast-talk­ing main­lan­der con­vinced the town of Straf­ford to waste sev­eral mil­lion dol­lars on a bunch of fans called the Blue Frog sys­tem.

The fans are sup­posed to sup­press the odour from their waste­water ponds but they have failed to do the job.

The per­ma­nent so­lu­tion to the odour prob­lem is to hook up to the Char­lot­te­town waste treat­ment plant and get rid of the waste­water ponds al­to­gether.

If town coun­cil had done the job prop­erly the first time they would not have an odour prob­lem and would not be a threat to oys­ter fish­er­men on the Hills­bor­ough river.

This hap­pens when we take short cuts and choose the cheaper and eas­ier op­tion which never solves the prob­lem com­pletely. David Steeves Char­lot­te­town
