The waterfront trail was recently closed because of sewer overflows into the Harbour. Lizanne Pharand, a water and wastewater treatment engineer, helps us make the connection: how do our waste disposal practices at home affect the health of Hamilton Harbour?
Welcome to BARC's new digital community forum, the go-to place for all things about Hamilton Harbour and Burlington Bay. You are invited to explore, learn and contribute to ideas and issues regarding the Hamilton Harbour Remedial Action Plan and the health and restoration of the watershed.
