Dalhousie lagoon fight with the province

Dalhousie has fired a warning shot across the province’s bow by saying “Keep your jail junk out of our sewage lagoon!”

Town council says the province is in violation of a town bylaw regarding junk that is ground up and flushed from the Dalhousie Regional Correctional Centre.

Council added that the macerator at the jail grinds up items like old sneakers and other junk, that gets into the sewer system; and plugs it up.
