SALTAIR WATER SYSTEM FILTRATION GRANT SUCCESSFUL: “I wanted to run up and down the streets knocking on everyone’s door to spread the amazing news. This grant application has been quite the roller coaster,” stated project champion Lynne Smith, Cowichan Valley Regional District Director
“I thank everyone who helped bring this about, particularly the Saltair Water Advisory Committee, which provided a needed perspective and helpful advice. I also specifically thank the local, provincial and federal bureaucrats and politicians who patiently listened to my pleas for support and who ultimately caused our application to succeed. It is full steam ahead to bring our water system into compliance and to meet the Island Health installation deadlines,” enthused Lynne Smith. The Saltair grant was a decade in the making, and resulted from the determined efforts of a band of community volunteers.
