Can you tell me if you are a registered society? If so, by what name do you go by, as I cannot locate you.
Also, I understand that you ran some candidates in the 2011 municipal elections. Can you confirm this?
Hello. No, at this time we are not a registered society, charitable organization or lobby group. Our current status is simply a self-funded volunteer-run community action group. Open Victoria was registered as an Elector Organization for the 2011 municipal election campaign in the City of Victoria and sponsored four candidates in that election, none of whom were elected to Council. The Elector Organization status expired after election day of the 2011 campaign.I hope this answers your questions.
Will the Oak Bay Sewage meeting be repeated anywhere else in ther City, (such as the Westshore). Congratulations for puttinhg on tonight’s meeting in Oak Bay
We have no plan to hold another public meeting on this issue at this time. But please monitor the Open Victoria website as we do plan to hold future Town Hall meetings on other issues of wide public interest. http://www.openvictoria.ca
the attached project scope was completed by CH2M Hill for a peak 54,000 m3/day secondary treatment facility for Brockville, Ontario and is available on the internet, no secrecy there. It produced a class C/D estimate. The cost estimate was about 20% less than installed. Project life cycle is 20 years versus 25 years. I fail to see how the CRD can claim that their estimate is a class C based on the limited engineering performed by Stantec. Both are subject to the same Federal standard for Public Works. There is also a huge discrepancy in the overall costs.
Regardless of whether you see a need for water treatment, there is a major problem with both the engineering and the estimate at the CRD, and to proceed is foolhardy. A pilot test facility costing 10-20 miliion is the way to go to satisfy all parties.
we need to know who prepared the estimate for the CRD and who authorized that estimate? where is that approval sheet?
there are dozens of similar examples if you do your homework and google.
there are major problems inherent to pumping a slurry miles undergound in what needs to be a concrete lined pipe under pressure. where do you even get that pipe fabricated? just welding the sections together and ensuring each joint is fully grouted requires skills beyond most pipefitters. anodic protection is a must for the full length of the steel pipe.
digging the trench and disposal of potentially contaminated soil is your first hurdle.
unless you’ve seen and been involved in a project of this magnitude, the complexity is incomprehensible. and when the pumps stop, and they do, the slurry settles out. the slurry pumps themselves will require special seals and materials to handle abrasive materials.
and if you get a rupture then the recent incident at Oak Bay will look like a play in the paddling pool.
we have still not had the promised explanation from the Saanich works department for the sewage rupture on Lochside which caused the Cordova Bay beach to be closed for a month earlier this year. was it poor design, maloperation or corrosion?
can we expect any CRD engineers at the meeting? I should like to discuss the details with them.
