Qs FROM CONSTITUENTS: LAKE EUGENIA HEALTH - RESTRICTING FERTILIZERS AND PESTICIDES
Updated: Sep 28
This blog post is part of my series on the 2022 Municipal Election called Questions from Constituents. In it I will answer questions from constituents and post them here, so that everyone can understand where I sit on a variety of issues.
These questions came from a long time cottage owner on Lake Eugenia who has concerns about the current and future health of Lake Eugenia.
It was recommend I check out helplakeeugenia.com, which I did.
These following are the questions:
Would you support the introduction of mandatory Septic bed inspections and remediation for those septic systems that are not up to today's building code for all properties in and around Lake Eugenia? Yes/No and Why? https://www.daniellevaliquette.ca/post/questions-from-constituents-lake-eugenia-health
Would you support the restriction of all lawn enhancing fertilizers and pesticides for all properties on Lake Eugenia? Yes/No and Why? https://www.daniellevaliquette.ca/post/qs-from-constituents-lake-eugenia-health-restricting-fertilizers-and-pesticides-1
What ideas/actions will you take to stay connected to the Lake Residents and Cottagers ideas, recommendations and concerns? https://www.daniellevaliquette.ca/post/qs-from-constituents-lake-eugenia-health-public-consultation
Would you support the restriction of all lawn enhancing fertilizers and pesticides for all properties on Lake Eugenia? Yes/No and Why?
Yes, I did some research into by-laws regulating the restrictions of fertilizers and pesticides, in particular, Greater Sudbury's by-laws intended to help protect the health of their many lakes. I would support a resolution to have Staff authour a report on options for a by-law on regulating the restrictions of fertilizers and pesticides on waterfront properties.
Additionally, I look forward to the Scoped Lake Eugenia Management study by Hutchinson Environmental Services Ltd. I imagine this study will provide the quantitative evidence to justify the regulation.
See all the questions I have been asked throughout the 2022 Campaign!
