Now that you’ve had time to digest the information provided at the June 17, 2015 UBID Board meeting, isn’t it about time you started to actually think? If you bothered watching the meeting you have been provided with the maximum number of additional households Langley Lake could supply at this time. So why were we fed the following in 2009 by the pro KIP Costanza Board?
1. “The storage capacity of the lake is 690,000 cubic metres,” he told the Echo. “What more is there to study? 2. “It’s simple,” he contended. “We have 640 connections (properties drawing on the supply) and they use an average of 230 cubic metres a year. 640 multiplied by 230 is 147,200. 3. “That leaves 542,800 cubic metres available, and based on the current average use, that’s enough for up to 2,360 new connections without any change to the lake’s capacity.”
According to the info provided at the meeting, on our present water licence we can accommodate a total of 1045 households (650 connections currently). So the previous fools were looking at the capacity of the lake, and by their figures and out to lunch reasoning, they figured they could drain the lake and it would miraculously refill every day. The crap that we have been fed by this KIP Costanza Glee Club is astonishing and what makes it worse is that the majority of Union Bay believe these goofs. It’s not hard to tell what and who is “simple”.
EDIT: Good comment by Paul Allard. I like your sense of humour!
As a newbe I have decided to put my name forward to be part of the working group on municipal water. I will be part of the solution and hope to help flush out facts
Thank you Paul for caring and taking the time to find out. Well done.
