Thanks to all that have called or written regarding the Esowista Sewer System.I can tell you that a search of the BC Courts showed that there is no pending litigation.It is also apparent that there are major problems with the sewer system.There has been a lot of activity around the system at Esowista,Mallard Lake and the Maltby Rd. lift station.From what I have been told and seen there is a problem getting the wastewater past the Mallard Lake Rd. junction and there have been problems with the pipe from Esowista being blocked.
Credible sources have stated that there are design flaws but this has yet to be confirmed.Some readers have asked when the District of Tofino is going to upgrade the Maltby Rd. lift station and when the sewer main between Maltby Rd and Lynn Rd is going to be twinned as is called for in the agreement with Esowista.
If you would like a copy of the agreement between the District of Tofino and Esowista/TFN just include your email address in a comment and I will forward it.These won't be published.Estimates for the twinning of the sewer line between Maltby Rd and Lynn Rd were about 1.3 million dollars with a contribution from Esowista of $353,760. A considerable undertaking.
I'm afraid with this subject there are more questions than answers but I will try to get more information.Please comment if you have any insight.
On another topic there is no word as to what was discussed at the Special Saturday In-Camera Meeting.Many readers have been asking if there are going to be changes with Council or staff but it is all being kept secret at this time.
