Off-base criticism / June 11, 2015

Dear Viewpoint:

A response to “About that letter” - I would like to say how well the HCSA has responded to every event that has happened with regards to fly-ash, taste, odor and the violations. When the issue arose the HCSA water plant employees were out flushing hydrants and trying to solve the issue even in the rain and snow. If you paid close attention to the papers and the notices you would know that a lot of changes have taken place to correct the violations at hand. I am sure that the HCSA employees live in Halifax County and most likely, their friend and families. We all want and deserve clean uncontaminated water. The words negligent and ignorant were totally un-called for as they are absolutely doing all that they can. I would like to praise HCSA for the work that they are doing, especially considering that our real problems are out of ALL of our control and are UPSTREAM!!
