Water improvement financing an important matter
Big users mainly spell i-n-d-u-s-t-r-y. The five biggest water users in the parish are Entergy, Valero, Shell, Argus Chemical and Bunge North America.
Questions remain: Should industry shoulder the lion’s share of the cost? Will this be a sufficient burden to deter expansion of our present industry or the location of new industry here? Or will the increased burden be sufficient to cause some of our present industry to make their own water as Shell used to do?
One thing is clear: St. Charles Parish must have an upgrade on the east bank. The sticky part comes in deciding who pays for the expansion.
Either way, we must be aware of the effect our chosen plan has on the economy and the cost of this important commodity to residents and industry alike.
The possible effect of our chosen plan must be carefully examined before a definite decision is made.
No doubt, our water system needs improvement and the cost will have to be borne by its users. Just how this will be apportioned is very important to the system’s successful operation in the future.
