Report estimates operational costs for Purcells Cove water/sewage up to $34 million

People in Purcells Cove may be interested in a new report prepared by Efficiency Nova Scotia’s Adam Hayter and Our HRM Alliance. That’s a group that was formed in 2011 and according to its website includes organizations like the Ecology Action Centre, Fusion Halifax, and the Downtown Business Commission. 
The report was released Jan. 18 and is an estimate of the operational costs for extending water and sewage along Purcells Cove Road. It makes a number of assumptions including the cost of energy and the construction of 1,600 new homes in a nearby development. 
Using those assumptions, the report concludes the operational costs over the next 50 years would be between $6.8-$34 million.
