Queen Charlotte Village Council is still waiting for test results on the ten samples taken near the old dump a couple of weeks ago. “There is nothing new at this point, we are waiting for the report to come back,” said Andrew Yeates, village administrator. The samples were sent to Dayton and Knight Engineering in Vancouver to see if the material is contaminated by leaching from the old dump. “We have continued to test the water where the original source was going to be taken out of the Honna River, the.samples were taken from one of the spots pointed out where leachate is in the water,” said Mr. Yeates. He had no idea when the test results will be available.
