LITTER PICKUP and Awareness Week – October 29 to November 5. Quadra Rec and Viken Waste Management are encouraging everyone to “clean up the ‘hood”. Choose that road that really bugs you because of the litter problem and tackle it. Get bags from QCC, mark your name and number on them, pick up litter and deposit the bags beside your regular garbage, or take it to West Rd or the Back Rd and deposit it. Viken will come by and pick it up. Your name could get drawn to win groceries from Tru Value. THIS WEEKEND AT Q.C.C.

GARAGE & YARD SALES ADVERTISE your garage/yard/moving sale in the Hungry Eye and you’ve put a personal invitation into every mailbox on Quadra Island. Is there a better deal for $6?

BOTTLED WATER VERSUS TAP WATER – WHICH IS BETTER? You might be surprised to learn that in most cases, there is no difference. Some people think bottled water is safer than tap water, but Canadian quality standards are similar for bottled and municipal water (this includes tap water). • Municipal drinking water systems are routinely inspected to ensure that the chemical and microbiological quality meets provincial standards. All water that meets or exceeds these standards is considered safe. • Bottled water labelled as ‘mineral’ or ‘spring’ water comes from underground water sources. Other types of bottled water may be made from public water sources, including tap water and well water. No matter where it comes from, bottled water sold in Canada is inspected and treated during manufacturing to remove harmful microorganisms, but it is not sterilized.

NO ENERGY FOR A GARAGE SALE? Try a classified ad for your bigger stuff. Only $6 + HST for 40 words or less and $15 + HST for 41-80 words. Count your words! There is no better way to sell an item on Quadra than in the Hungry Eye.

Individuals who get their water from a well should note that Health Canada recommends having their water tested regularly to ensure it is safe from bacteria or chemical contamination. It should also be tested if there is any change to the water’s clarity, color, smell or taste.

Your Eye on

It is best to use water from the cold water tap for drinking and cooking. Water from the hot water tap may contain more lead and other nonbiological contaminants because hot water can dissolve or leach them more readily.
