Is this real? Government spending tax dollars to fix a problem created by corporate greed? Is it not obvious that if you stop spraying the poison on the land the water could be safe to drink? What about other communities, does the Government have enough cash to upgrade all water sources?
Moncton plans to spend $6 million this winter to upgrade its water treatment plant, the first phase of a plan to deal with cyanobacteria in the municipal water supply.
Cyanobacteria was found in 2017 in the Turtle Creek watershed, the drinking water source for Moncton, Dieppe and Riverview. Cyanobacteria, also known as blue-green algae, can form blooms and produce toxins harmful to humans and animals.
