Letters: Chlorine concern is a fuss about nothing

Dear Editor,

I fail to see why all the fuss regarding chlorination of Raro's water supply.

Whilst I personally think it is a great idea, I cannot see how calcium hypochlorite can be shipped to the Cook Islands, as our only international shipping operator, Matson, will not load this product.

According to a routine email from Matson: “We are unable to carry Calcium Hypochlorite and various versions of Calcium Hypochlorite. UN numbers 2208, 2880, 3485, 3486 & 3487, 1479 & 1748 are all prohibited.”

Cheers,

Tom Harrison, Aitutaki
