The Town of Dalhousie will face charges under the Clean Environment Act in
April.

According to the Tribune… Dalhousie lawyer Rod Duguay appeared in
Campbellton provincial court on Monday and entered a not guilty plea on the
town’s behalf.

The charge alleges in August the town shut down a section of the wastewater
system due to heavy rains resulting in some sewage being released into the
bay.
