Don Quixote Comments :
The "recommended chosen" option 2 By SAC Committee is a $111 million dollar expenditure that should have a peer review or an engineering & operational and financing review before it is reincorporated into the master water plan for IHA blessing and approval.
We originally managed to get a Peer Review of Duteau Filtration and that $30,000 study concluded that the cost of this method could reduce the Filtration Costs at Duteau from the $26.5 million Filtration in Option 2 (http://www.rdno.ca/docs/TM10_Financial_Plan_FINAL.pdf ) to between $8 and $10 million for the ultraviolet and scrubbing method as recommended in this peer review. (if approved by IHA)
I asked for a peer review before the last election and referendum and still feel that when we are requiring a $111 million expenditure ( with $26.5 for Duteau Filtration and $30 million for mission Hill Filtration )(in 2022) that we pursue a professional review.
