I would like to add my comments on the waterline boondoggle [Waterline project not funny, July 22 Letters, Langley Advance].
We live on the edge of the Salmon River ravine â€“ the construction â€œwar zoneâ€ passes right in front of our house, and our road somewhat resembles the pictures the Mars Rover sends back to earth.
I called the Township engineering office and requested they ask the contractor to clean up their mess â€“ at least sweep and wash the road before the dust comes back. By 8 p.m. Friday evening, nothing was done.
Just to add fuel to the fire, the contractor left at 9 p.m., after spraying enough water on the road and area to leave it looking like a swamp. It is totally unacceptable, and whoever is responsible at Langley Township has some explaining to do.
What other venue do we citizens have with which to vent, if not the local news media?
Thanks for being there.
Win Bromley, Langley Township
