Backgrounder;

The pH of pure water is 7. In general, water with a pH lower than 7 is considered acidic, and with a pH greater than 7 is considered basic. The normal range for pH in surface water systems is 6.5 to 8.5, and the pH range for groundwater systems is between 6 to 8.5. The Canadian drinking water quality guideline for pH is an Aesthetic Objective (AO) of between 6.5 and 8.5. pH

June 2020 water reports show pH level at 7.5 after treatment.

Water with a low pH can be acidic, naturally soft and corrosive. … If your water is acidic (less than 7 pH) you may have problems with leaching of copper and lead from your plumbing.

Union Bay is NOT under a boil water advisory

UBID is not on a Boil Water Notice

BY ADMINISTRATOR · JANUARY 5, 2021UBID’s water distribution and treatment system is independent of the CVRD’s water system and draws its source water from Langley Lake, not Comox Lake. With the introduction of a Dissolved Air Flotation plant in May 2020, the likelihood of a Boil Water Notice due to turbidity is highly unlikely.  Please note that UBID is NOT on a Boil Water Notice.

Confirmed the request made by UBE and said it is a process that looks at Financial, Environmental and everything else that goes to bringing it in from surrounding areas.

I pointed out that it did not seem beneficial to them with not one house built ?

Hello 5 minutes after I emailed you 3 Guys from Fortis were walking across the Street I ran out.
