CSRD Area C Candidate: Paul Demenok responds – What project do you consider to be your number-one priority?

Columbia Shuswap Regional District (Areas C, D, E, F): Demenok, Paul - Director Candidate for Area C

There are two high-priority projects in Area C, Blind Bay/Sorrento sewers and drinking water treatment for Sunnybrae Estates. Groundwater monitoring in 2013 in Sorrento/Blind Bay reported bacteria above Canadian standards in 13 of 17 sites, negatively affecting lake water quality. Lack of sewers slows economic development and depresses real estate prices. For homeowners replacing old septic systems, community sewers could provide significant cost savings. Upgrading of mal-performing and poorly designed septic systems will help protect our source of drinking water. Upgrading water treatment in Sunnybrae would eliminate the long-standing boil water advisory.
