Public health and safety threats are escalating in Metro Vancouver because an aging sewage handling and treatment system will fail more often as a result of climate change, according to a federal report uncovered by The Vancouver Sun.
The report says heavier rainstorms will frequently overwhelm portions of the region's sewage system and accelerate the spill of raw sewage into Burrard Inlet and the Strait of Georgia.
That means more raw sewage will be dumped into the ocean more often, in apparent violation of the Fisheries Act.
The doom-laden rest is floating right here.
Anyone else waiting to see if Global Warming causing clocks to stop and makes cows give spoiled milk?
