I have been reading a lot about boil water advisories lately. As every one knows, water is our most precious commodity and we should take better care of it. We are always short of water here, but we are building more and more subdivisions around Vernon!
Being retired, I have a lot of time and am fishing in and around the backcountry in our area.
I would like to know why the shores of many of our lakes in the Vernon watershed are covered with cow dung? There are four-wheelers driving around the reservoirs when the water table are low in the fall?
As far as I can see, there is no protection of our water any where to be seen. Were is all of the money from the utilities going to?
On another note, this one to the Ministry of Forests. Is it possible to maybe once every 10 years, fix up the roads going to the forestry sites? You need an army truck to get to them.
We always advertise enjoy nature around the area, and are trying to get tourism here. But the roads to most lakes in the back country are a disgrace.
