Water customers should be thanking Dr. Enns

Dear editor,

Forty-one-thousand CVRD water customers, including many Comox Valley businesses, should be thanking Dr. Charmmaine Enns for ordering the Comox Valley Regional District, Village of Cumberland and Timberwest to address the basic cause of the 47-day boil water order. Finally, some leadership.

Dr. Enns established  a timeline of Sept. 16, before fall rains, to fix the problem and establish clear penalties for each party if the problem is not addressed.

Thank you Dr. Enns. We are all tiring of boil water emergencies on what used to be a “pristine”, plentiful, water supply - Comox Lake.  And stage 3.
