After yesterday's rainfall we encourage Toronto residents and visitors to report any sightings of sewage and pollution in the Inner Harbour, Don River, Humber River and Black Creek areas to 311 Toronto via phone, email and social media. It is advised to avoid swimming for 48-hours after rainfall.
Lake Ontario Waterkeeper's Toronto Harbour Water Monitoring results from Tuesday, August 21st will be available today after 12pm. There will not be sampling conducted today. Thursday, August 23rd will be the next sampling day. Anyone that wishes to take part in the volunteer program can sign up here.
We have already requested the city start regularly monitoring the Inner Harbour because of these combined sewage overflows with a letter to the city.
