Last Thursday, Mark and I went out with Sheila, John and their lovely dog Breezy to get an update on testing at Brewery Creek. We were treated to the history of the creek (it was the portage route around Chaudiere Falls for the Algonquins), learned about the local homeless encampment along the creek (they were over capacity this year and did a lot of clear-cutting on the banks), and got updates on their efforts to figure out what sewage is being dumped there (rates are well over the healthy levels and have peaked at 8000, way more than the 300 safe for paddling).
Thank you again!
As always, Sheila and John have been so amazing at teaching us about why the creek is so important, displaying so much passion for its history and preservation, and showed us how testing can make a real difference! We’re looking forward to sitting with them next week to enter their data into our app!
