BRIDGETOWN (CP) — Nova Scotia’s Environment Department is investigating the release of raw sewage into a brook in the Annapolis Valley.
The department says the Town of Bridgetown has confirmed that a pipe is releasing untreated sewage into Solomon Chute.
As a result, residents are being told to avoid contact with the stream.
That includes swimming in, drinking from or eating fish from water sources north of Jubilee Park, including the Annapolis River.
The town says it is fixing the problem, but it remains unclear how much sewage has spilled into the brook.
The Environment Department says the release has not affected the town’s drinking water supply.
Should you have further questions, you might try calling the Nova Scotia Environment Department or checking their website for further releases.
