There were two major fires in Spryfield in 2009 and 2012. Camp fires, near Roaches Pond, in the MacIntosh Run area started the massive fire in the spring of 2009. The ferocious blaze threatened lives, destroyed homes, razed property and incinerated acres of pristine, forested barrens in the Purcells Cove Conservation Lands. More than 100 firefighters and five water bombers were used to fight the inferno.
The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents that the blue-green algae risk advisory previously in effect for Williams Lake Beach in Cunard Pond has been lifted.

The Williams Lake Conservation Company is partnering with the Canadian Wildlife Federation and Watersheds Canada to bring you their successful shoreline evaluation program, Love Your Lake.
In the coming days volunteers from the WLCC will be knocking on the doors of lakeshore property homes to distribute an information package about the Love Your Lake and a survey of your interests and thoughts on your use of the lake and your concerns
