From the CBC News (link here)…
A major environmental crisis is developing at the multi-million dollar Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary.
Mike Goddard reports that water levels have been falling and this is causing management major concern.
General Manager of the Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary, Harry Roberts, has for some time been complaining about problems with the sluice gate which controls the flow of water into and out of the swamp, and the impact this could have on the sanctuary.
Mr. Roberts claims that the water levels are now dangerously low and he is hoping that something happens soon to alleviate the situation.
Government has not responded to an offer to install an automatic sluice gate and in the meantime, the effects of the low water levels can be seen throughout the sanctuary.
Along with the dead fish, there is evidence of declining water quality… Dying aquatic vegetation…..and a general fall off in the high quality of what Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary usually offers those who enjoy its tranquil natural beauty.
