Bypass into 2016

leave a comment »

 
A bypass of ground water processing at 2220 Kingsway was reported by Eye on Norquay on 8 November 2015. As of 2 January 2016, the City of Vancouver allows such bypassing to continue.

 
As 2015 turns the corner into forgettable past, the following photo essay documents how Westbank’s contractor at 2220 Kingway continues to scoff at City of Vancouver requirements, and to bypass its own equipment for ground water processing. Freezing conditions help to show what is happening.

In addition, Westbank’s contractor leaves a leaky hose to spew water for days. Cheaper than replacing the damaged hose. Apparent motto: Damn the environment. Waste water. Prioritize profits.
