I can't believe the nerve of the St. John's Port Authority to call Mr. Jordan and the residents of the Outer Battery lairs. The Encanex facility "HAS" been built and is waiting for the passing of the "environmental assessment", almost like it's "inevitable". Yes, there is construction on a new dolphin pier to accommodate more vessel traffic, this is not what Mr. Jordan is talking about at all, but SJPA are once again misleading the public in their response to these questions. Any person can drive down onto pier 17 at the far end of water street and clearly see the Encanex facility inside the fenced area adjacent to pier 17 East. The sign clearly reads pier 18 Waste Water treatment facility, and all the Encanex equipment is in place to start treating this oily slug from the offshore oil rigs. "WHO" is going to take SJPA to task with all their misleading and underhanded ways. First the Harbor fence and now this pier 18 treatment plant right under the historical community of the battery. Millions of tax payers dollars have been spent on tourism ads in NL promoting this rich historical and scenic area and now they want to treat oily slug right under their windows. The chair of the board of directors of SJPA Steve Marshall should be brought to task along with the CEO of SJPA Sean Hanrahan. I think enough is enough....
