Qualified Professionals hired by the Town of Gibsons say "the George" poses risks to Gibsons aquifer.
Klaus Fuerniss’s "George Hotel" development application originally included a report by Horizon Engineering that said excavations for the project would not harm Gibsons’ aquifer, and GABC was very troubled by this claim. We commissioned a peer review of the report in January 2014 that determined excavations would in fact penetrate Gibsons’ aquifer. After a year of study and further peer review by consultants hired by the Town of Gibsons, it turns out that all our concerns and predictions have been proven correct.
Yet Klaus Fuerniss keeps on telling the public that the aquifer is not at risk and Gibsons Mayor Wayne Rowe, does not seem to be concerned.
