City selling watershed land

The City is selling two parcels of land in the Loch Lomond Lake watershed, according to CBC.

Saint John has spent decades buying up land to protect the city’s drinking water supply…now it’s selling. One of the parcels includes a house and garage. The other is vacant land. Both are about one acre.

Mayor Don Darling says council has been assured by city managers the move will not endanger the water supply.
