Re: Proposed Water Treatment Plant.
It is evident that there is a groundswell of opposition building against the Village’s water treatment proposal.
“Turbidity” is a characteristic of rivers and has been with us a long time; it has never been regarded as a serious health hazard. Morever, to undertake a major expenditure at a time when we are losing businesses (viz. convenience store/gas station; Central Cafe; the sandwich and coffee shop) does not make economic sense.
The residents of Ashcroft and area deserve – and should demand – a plebiscite on this issue.
