The Sunshine Coast Conservation Association is concerned about the Sunshine Coast Regional District’s Chapman Water Supply Expansion Project.

Daniel Bouman with the conservation association says the SCRD is currently in an Alternative Approval Process to borrow five million dollars for the project and the association is hoping to prevent that from happening….

Bouman says to in order for them to prevent the SCRD from borrowing the money through the APP, 10 percent of electors have to be opposed and the deadline to submit an elector response form to the SCRD is July 26th.

If 10 percent of electors are opposed to the APP the SCRD will still go ahead with the borrowing for the expansion project, but they’ll have to payback the money over 5 years rather than 30 years.
