Water expert’s knowledge in doubt

Sooke reservoir, Capital Regional District water supply

Re: Capital Region water use down (News, July 27)

I read in disbelief the statements from Jan Van Niekerk from the Capital Regional District that, in his words, it is conservation and not the cold miserable wet spring we have endured for the lack of water use. Where do they hire these people?

Of course it has been the bad weather that has kept water usage to a minimum this year.

Please don’t quote these people, as they just infuriate me with their lack of knowledge and their ability to follow the company line and not use the brains God gave them.
