Letter to the editor – project on hwy 44


Dear Editor,

I would like to know why nothing has been reported about the ongoing project on hwy 44 across from the Municipal Center. Seems to be a massive undertaking that involves the pumping of ground water. Who is paying for this? Why is it necessary? Could it be because the new housing project was built on ‘wetlands’? I do recall that back in 2011 or 2012 the development land, or part thereof, was designated as such. Then at some point it was decided by the powers that be that it wasn’t really wetlands. My concern of course is that massive amounts of water is now being diverted OUT OF THE WATER TABLE. I can’t see how this is a good thing. There was never a need to move all this water prior to the ongoing development there. Again I ask, who is paying for this!
