Water test results still not public

  • Oct. 5, 2007 2:00 p.m.

The results of the water test for Queen Charlotte’s proposed water intake on the Honna River have not yet been made public. Administrator Andrew Yeates said a conference call between the Northern Health, the engineers Dayton and Knight, village staff and a Ministry of the Environment hydrologist took place Sept. 27. The purpose of the call was to go over the draft report of the results from testing at the intake site and at the old Honna landfill. Some revisions are now being made.He said a public meeting will be held at the end of this month to discuss the final report. He intends to make the report available on the Queen Charlotte website prior to the meeting. The water intake location became an issue last summer when several village residents expressed concern it was going to take in water flowing through an old garbage dump.
