Destroyed wetlands in Herring Cove.


Remarks: The construction of the new sewer plant involved excessive filling of wetlands, says a reader. "The example that they set has bled to residents here as well. People are taking to filling in wetlands and small ponds that in previous years were teeming with life...and some residents are continuing to fill and extend their dry lands into the highly important diverse coastal wetlands." Wells says the sewer plant construction was no doubt fully licenced and the municipality only regulates wetlands in new subdivisions---but the province might get involved if complaints are received.

Who's Responsible?: Roger Wells, HRM planner, 490-4373.
