Just a passing thought......

The CRD is talking about any sewage treatment plant that is built to recover heat from the sewage. a great idea and I support it. But what I wonder is why the CRD is not looking at the potential to generate electrical power from the water system?

The dam at the Sooke reservoir could easily have a turbine or two put into it and it could produce electrical power. Right now that potential power is all wasted when it could be producing green power. Doing this would be a quick and easy way to increase power production with no impact on the environment.

So why is the CRD not doing this?

I honestly do not know why communities all around BC are not making use of turbines on their water systems to produce green power.
