Can we deduct this from our « reconciliation fee »?

Sounds like there was quite the spill at Salt Spring’s sewage treatment plant. From the CRD:

A spill of wastewater has occurred at the Ganges Wastewater Treatment Plant on Salt Spring Island. A mechanical failure of part of the above ground piping system, likely as a result of the current cold temperatures, was the root cause of the spill. Much of the volume was contained on site, but some sewage ran overland, entered the storm water system leading from the facility to Ganges Creek and out to Ganges Harbour. Crews have completed clean-up efforts, placed warning signs, and cordoned off the affected area including a section of the path located immediately north of the facility adjacent to Ganges Creek.

As a result of this discharge, residents are advised to avoid contacting the affected areas where the spill occurred as well as avoid entering the waters along the affected shorelines, as the wastewater may pose a health risk.

As a precaution and in consultation with Island Health, the affected area will be posted with public health advisory signs until environmental sample results indicate that the affected area no longer poses a health risk.

Darron Kloster just posted a couple of interesting articles about the journey of a turd along with some high level thoughts in the TC this morning. Worth a read.

Is it political?  About Lisa Helps coming to Victoria from Ontario?

Meanwhile, the CRD is exploring plans to make the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant more accessible for the public, including tours for schools and other interested groups.

 

A large observation deck is being ­outfitted with information boards on how the plant works. It’s close to a laboratory and the control room where workers monitor flows in the plant and pipeline system and analysts study the sewage treatment process.

You said the story was about "the journey of a turd".  So that sprang to mind.
