LETTER: Provide free sani-dump for RVs

In some towns and cities, tourists with RVs are welcomed at a tourist information centere that offers a no-charge sanitation sewer dump.

In some towns and cities in the Kootenays, tourists who travel with RV units are welcomed with a tourist information centre that offers a no-charge sanitation sewer dump close to where free maps are supplied for areas that may be of interest to the tourist.

The area is large enough to allow large RV units to easily access the water and sewer dump facilities with adequate parking space while operators access the maps, etc.

These areas include Cranbrook, Castlegar, Creston, Grand Forks, and Greenwood. Now that Nelson has a better tourist facility at the foot of Baker St., perhaps it’s time to install a proper free RV dump and water pick up area near the tourist information centre.

The present tourist park is crowded and access to the sewer and water facility is tough for big rigs. Charging $10 for a sewer dump and water fill up is out of line with other communities where this service is happily provided as a drawing card for the many RV travellers who grace our Queen City and leave tourist dollars with us in the summer months.

Bob Johnson, Nelson
