Update on Highland Creek Treatment Plant EA
The Ministry of the Environment has now had the results of the Highland Creek Treatment Plant (HCTP) Biosolids Management Plan Environmental Assessment (EA) for eight months. The HCTP Neighbourhood Liaison Committee wrote a follow-up letter to Environment Minister Glen Murray on February 17 stating that: “We are concerned about the length of time that your Ministry is taking to review and sign off on the EA that was completed and adopted by City Council in May 2016. We therefore request that you advise us if there are any outstanding issues of concern related to the project, and if not, we hope that you will be able to complete your review in an expeditious manner, so that the city may proceed with implementation of the upgrade project forthwith.” More

Schooners such as the Duke of York (1820), the fastest ship on the lake in her day, the Wood Duck (1822), which was a 25-ton schooner, along with the Mary Ann and the Highland Chief were built at the mouth of the Highland Creek.
