To the editor,
Members of Pictou County council have some concerns that untreated sewage from the treatment plant in Pictou is getting into the inner harbour past the causeway. A good starting point to investigate might be to put 20 rubber duckies in the water near the treatment plant outlet and see if any of them make it past the causeway over a few tide changes.
One could use marker dye but duckies are more fun (and temporary) and the flue under the causeway is very shallow. If the duckies can't make it, the cause of coliforms must be something else.
