There is no environmental case for fixing the dam because an operational structure results in the ecocide of the sensitive and COSEWIC identified Species at Risk between the dam and the forks. Fixing the dam will be a waste of taxpayer money better spent on making measurable improvements to our infrastructure to completely eliminate the hundreds of millions of liters of untreated wastewater that is released into the river. Impounding this wastewater along with all the other agricultural, residential and commercial sources of pollution creates a public health and safety risk within the reservoir within a functional dam and contradicts our commitments to do our part to reduce toxic blue-green algae in the Great Lakes. An environmentalist thinks of the environment first and speak up for the creatures and systems that cannot defend themselves from human activity.
