For some reason in July of 2011 the District of Tofino estimated the water bill for Pacific Sands rather than reading the meter.On January 19,2012 the water meter was changed.This would indicate that somebody knew there was a problem.Apparently nobody bothered to check if the new meter was working correctly as the water bill for July to September of 2012 was only $3630.97 but after the water meter was changed again on April 1 2014 the billing was significantly higher.As a matter of fact it rose to $32,166.50 for the period of July-September 2014.So somebody on staff knew of the problem a long time before the Watermetergate scandal became public.Let's hope somebody is held accountable.Again this is only one example from one resort;the problem is much more widespread.Are the new meters accurate ?? Who knows ?? I would advise anyone with larger water consumption to install their own accurate meters so they can check the District's numbers.
