Here's where a lot of Residents in Cape Ray get their clean source of drinking water. It's 2011 and I'm wondering if there are any more places in NL where so many have to do this. I do think Black Tickle in Labraor has a similar problem. My own source has become so bad now that we have to go to another community with our laundry and my next door neighbors also go elsewhere. This coming Spring we will have to invest up to $10,000 for an Artesian Well. We can expect no help from the Government but yet years ago they made an offer for helping communities.We will soon see large Transmission lines and Infrastructure near our community running Hydro Lines across the Cabot Strait to Nova Scotia. I doubt if anyone who comes to the area to work will build a home in Cape Ray but go elsewhere because of the fact we have no water source available. With the upcoming election in October hopefully those still without a clean drinking water supply will elect someone who thinks in this day and age it's a right to have it.
