Spallumcheen Mayor Janice Brown has had a phone chat with Environment Minister George Heyman about the Hullcar Aquifer.
She’s encouraged the NDP government is going to take action over manure spraying on a farm over the aquifer.
“He had already arranged a voluntary moratorium over the spraying of the field two days after he was sworn in.”
Brown says the Minister told her he was on it.
“His priority was to protect the water source and all water sources and the environment and that he was going to find a solution.”
Brown and other Spallumcheen officials are meeting this afternoon with Assistant Deputy Environment Minister Jennifer McGuire.
