Listen to Living at the Barricades for 2009: The Big Pipe is a half-a-billion dollar sewage pipeline. Stretching across the north-eastern Greater Toronto Area, the Big Pipe will funnel more than 1 billion litres of sewage from York Region to Durham Region every single day. That's 95% one region's sewage dumped on the doorstep of another on a daily basis. Many residents in and around Pickering are concerned about smells, destruction of fish habitat, dewatering of the Oak Ridges Moraine, and pharmaceuticals in the Lake Ontario drinking water supply. We talk about those concerns, as well as Lake Ontario Waterkeeper's comment on the most recent environmental assessment of the Big Pipe, on this episode of Living at the Barricades. Jim Robb from Friends of the Rouge Watershed is our guest.
