South Hazelton new water treatment plant mishandled

South Hazelton's new water plant, installed in 2010, has been one headache after another for the community.

The South Hazelton Community Association mired in a water treatment battle since 2010, is frustrated.

The Regional District of Kitimat Stikine decided to installed a plant in 2010 capable of delivering water to a Kamloops-sized community, but the plant has yet to perform to expectations.

Julia Sundell, SHCA president, is frustrated at the lack of information forthcoming from the RDKS regarding why this specific treatment plant was installed and why financial information about the plant hasn’t been released to them for over two years.

A boil water advisory has been in effect in South Hazelton since because of infrastructure problems.

South Hazelton didn’t have water-related problems before the new plant was built.
