Lloyd Brooks told the RDEK board in a letter that a dump- ing station, for holding tank ef- fleunt from trailers and camp- ers, was built at Wasa, anoth- er will be built at Moyie Lake this year, and one or two oth- ers are being considered in this area. He pointed out that the extent of the problem, which has be- come critical across the prov- ince with large numbers of campers and trailers taking to the roads in tourist season, pre- cludes building as many such stations as the government would like. However, it is at work at parks and picnic sites across the province. A similar reply was retrieved from R. H. Aiirens, director of the parks branch of the depart- ment, in answer to the same request by the RDEK. He said, "we must distribute the sta- tions as evenly as possible through the province."
