Department of Fisheries and Oceans treating Bronte Creek on June 1, 2019

Fri, 31 May 2019

Department of Fisheries and Oceans are treating Bronte Creek starting up at the Cedar Springs community on June 1, 2019. They will be applying a liquid solution called a lampricide to the stream in very controlled concentrations at that location which will travel down to the marina by the morning of June 2, 2019 and will likely remain present for 9 to 15 hours. When it is present, the water will have a yellow/green tinge to it. The lampricide will be at a very low concentration of about five parts per million and will not be harmful at all to people or pets. It also photo degrades within a few days and does not remain in the environment.
