Public Works Minister Kim Masland is delivering on her promise to save Williams Lake by fixing the aging and leaky dam.
Build Nova Scotia has issued the following public service announcement regarding preliminary assessment work that will be taking place in the area of the dam. Equipment necessary for this work will be accessing the area by the Shaw Wilderness Park trail beginning this month.
HRM’s Environment and Sustainability Standing Committee (ESSC) addressed the much-anticipated staff report on the Williams Lake dam. The staff report fell flat in several areas, but the big take-away is the recommendation that Halifax Regional Council request the mayor to ask the province to assume responsibility for repairs or replacement of the Williams Lake dam.
Saltwire: “It’s a leaky dam, but it’s more like a hot potato.
“And for many of the residents who live near Williams Lake in Spryfield, they just want governments to work together to get the problem solved.
““As a resident, we feel like we’re being passed around by these levels of government,” said resident Sanja Trussell.” [Photo: Tim Krochak]
