Our water bills keep going up, our services that we get for our tax dollars, along with the quality of our water, keep going down. This is what tap water looked like this morning, June 5th 2017, in the Coldicutt area of White Rock.
If you live along the Oxford Street corridor, you may be more likely to have brown water coming from your taps these days. The brown color comes from the high manganese levels on the West side of White Rock. The West side (water from the Oxford and High Street wells) usually has the higher manganese level, while the East side (water from the Merklin well site) usually has the highest concentration of arsenic.
Is it time for another demonstration at City Hall?
The Mayor and Council do not seem to be listening. If interested in joining a rally for clean water. please contact the White Rock Safe Water Alliance through email at WhiteRockSafeWaterAlliance@gmail.com. We will add you to our mailing list and keep you informed about upcoming rallies on water.
