Clearing the waters
Two hot topics for the western end of Vaudreuil-Dorion – roads and potable water – are slowly being cured or should we say moving towards a solution. Both problems depended on provincial involvement, financially and legally.
Both are coming to a head. In the last few days, heavy equipment started widening and removing broken asphalt on Route Harwood between Highways 20 and 40. This work should be totally completed by the end of the year.
As to the second topic, potable water for three distinct areas - Hudson Acres, Tree Farm, and the Ritchie Development – the journey is beyond belief at the provincial level: MAMOT, MDDELCC, MTMDET, PRIMEAU and on and on!
I sent letters to our town council as well as our provincial and national representatives and then I had copies of this letter delivered to just about everyone in these three sectors.
On August 29, two good neighbours and I were asked to attend a meeting that would deal only with the problem of potable water – an update. We requested that the results of that meeting be forwarded to all residents of the three districts by September 10. Lo and behold, within three days we had received the entire info requested in both official languages.
And so, we all hope to have potable water running from out water taps by the end of July, 2018.
