LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Report on Rossland Watershed Reserves

Dear Editor, Will Koop of the BC Tapwater Alliance has just released a report on the history of Rossland's watershed reserves: http://bctwa.org/RossResRep-Dec8-08.pdf The report is a very interesting and thorough description of Rossland's efforts over the last 85 years to protect our water supplies and the machinations of the provincial government to undermine the control we once had over our water. This report is a must read for anyone who is interested in protecting the source of our water. Included in the report are excerpts and maps from historical documents which help describe the efforts by many previous councils to ensure the integrity of our watersheds. Laurie Charlton Rossland (Charlton is a Rossland City Councillor)
