This final project we voted on was a far cry from the original “South Sewer Project”.  When Cumberland pulled out and the CVRD went ahead trying to salvage a portion of the project with so few landowners bearing the cost, it was doomed.

Originally it was going to be financed over 20 years (around $2000/yr for a total of $40,000.) and then it went to 30 years (around $2000/yr for a total of $60,000.).

Then the O&M costs went from around $350./yr to over $600./yr.
