The Assembly last night (Monday) received a draft study on the city’s water system related to the city’s ongoing work on the AJ Mine.
For more than a year, the Assembly has been investigating whether to pursue re-opening the old mine near downtown, which is partially owned by the city. The AJ ore body is in Last Chance Basin – the city’s main source of drinking water – thus the need for the water study.
CBJ Engineering Director Rorie Watt said the study will see significant changes once public comment is taken on the draft version.
“I’ve contacted neighborhood associations that have been previously involved, as well as advocacy groups, and I would expect that we’ll get a lot of input on this topic,” said Watt.
The public comment period is open for one month, through March 28th. A comment form is available on the city’s website, and Watt will hold a public meeting next Wednesday, March 7th, in Assembly Chambers.
The issue will next be before the Assembly on April 9th at a Committee of the Whole meeting.
Copies of the report are available at the city’s website as well as at the Engineering Department office.
