Letters: Mixed watershed messaging


It’s interesting to see the headline “Chapman snowpack melts early,” alerting us of dire consequences. 

Impending early water restrictions, predictions of a warm dry summer, cautions about lawn watering. 

Not even a month has passed since I read an article stating Chapman watershed is rain dependent, amount of snowpack or lack thereof has little impact on the water availability. 

I assume the quote “melting snowpack…..huge role in recharge of our water system” was from the SCRD. Was it not SCRD personnel who informed us about the lack of impact snowpack has on Chapman watershed? 

It’s no wonder the SCRD hasn’t been able to find a fix for our water situation when they can’t decide what feeds our water supply.
