Thumb down in Comox to universal water meters

Dear editor,

In response to Mr. Harrison's letter to "implement universal water meters."

Dear editor,

In response to Mr. Harrison’s letter to “implement universal water meters.”

NO. This has been hashed and rehashed.

Meters do not save consumption of water. People through education and awareness programs will and are reducing consumption of the liquid.

The fact you live on a .5 acre and have garden beds and a lawn to maintain are your personal choices. The Town of Comox has been doing upgrades to the water system infrastructure to address leaks. Money spent doing this is better spent than slapping meters on every household at the cost of millions of taxpayer dollars.

In the past two or three years, water consumption has gone down. Now take into account the influx of new residents relocating here from around the world, then — yes — maybe it’s time to increase the water quota.

Virginio Casanova,

Comox
