The headlines say it all.
On June 6th 2021, a five year old discovered a bunch of dead fish in the Reay creek, on Vancouver Island.
Ian Bruce (executive co-ordinator of the Peninsula Stream Society) pulled 318 cutthroat trout and 6 Coho from the bottom of the creek.
“It appears somebody did something with a lot of bleach and it dropped into their perimeter drains then flowed out through the storm drain into the creek,” Ian Bruce said.
“The public needs to be aware that storm drains lead to these creeks and the ocean so and that there is a need to be careful about what goes down them”
“Even if you don’t go out to the street and put bleach down your grate, if you do it in your yard and it gets into your perimeter drain, this kind of thing can happen.”
The best way to prevent anything like this from happening is to simply use cleaning products that do not contain harmful ingredients.
