I estimate that's a $20mil waste of the taxpayer's money. No news outlet will touch it, since it is geotechnical. They'll take away all that nice sewer lining. All for the want of a nail. Actually, a tenbuck pump test, with a million dollar chemical grout. :)
The erosion project, which is provincial, is finally gone. They put topsoil on top of all the bricks. They can still plant trees by getting a backhoe to dig a big hole through the bricks. Grass should grow on it. This cannot be instantly declared a waste of money, but you can see the gully erosion starting.
pps. gave this to the cbc, but nobody cares about a few million.
