Work On Flooding Problem In Oakville Acres Hits Brick Wall

More complications in solving the flooding problem for the people who live at Oakville Acres in Rothesay.

The project is now at a standstill according to Mayor Bill Bishop because of restrictions from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans along with two property owners who are putting up a fight over the town taking over their land.

No work will be done this year and, according to Bishop, the earliest it can be started is next summer.

The town had to apply to the province for a watercourse and wetland alteration.
