A Water Boundary Solution?

Back when we were putting the Kneehill Regional Water Services Commission (now the Aqua 7 Regional Water Services Commission) together, the M.D. of Rocky View (now Rocky View County) suggested that their boundaries extend south to Highway 1 and west to the Queen Elizabeth II Highway.  All of us gathered in the old Acme Hall agreed that setting those boundaries out that far was a little premature.  We set the boundaries much closer to the NE corner of Rocky View with the understanding that they could be easily altered at any time to accommodate development within the northeast corner of the County.

Maybe it's time to revisit those old boundary proposals, again. 

Sending Aqua 7 water to the far south and west ends of Rocky View just wouldn't make sense.  Setting the boundaries at the two highways may just put Drumheller's Town Council at ease. 

It would then be a neighbour helping a neighbour thing.  Drumheller has already approved an Aqua7 water line to Kathyrn when and if it were needed!

Let me know what you think.
