Union Bay Water Source for Potable Water

The following is a ‘Minority Report’ as I am the twice elected trustee of  Union Bay Improvement District.  UBID is responsible for potable water, fire prevention services and street lights.  Potable water is a serious responsibility and I feel landowners deserve factual information based on evidence regarding the quality and quantity of our drinking water as well as a full disclosure of the true cost of the build out of the treatment plant. The following is my opinion based on facts, evidence and personal experience.  I am not speaking on behalf of the UBID Board.  

Constructive solutions based comments are encouraged.  This is our community and our water.

  1. To answer some of your questions.
    Yes…. a yellow notice was put near the news boxes on Tappin Street.
    Yes…..September minutes showed the NTU amounts, however I could not find the water works attached reports with the approved minutes on the following dates…May 24th, March 22nd, February 15th and Jan 18
    Factual information needs to be shared with ones neighbours…
