City in court on environmental charge

The city is in court this week on an environmental charge. It stems from an occurance on the Current River. Lisa Brygidyr of the Ministry of the Environment says it took place in April of last year. She says during the spring smelt spawning run the water flow was suddenly reduced. It resulted in the small fish being stranded on land and many of them died. The hearing is taking place at the Metis Hall on May Street.
