Kootenay Lake news

I talked to my mom tonight and she went over to Kootenay Lake over to Easter weekend.  She told me the large ferry had a break down and leaked oil in the lake.  I looked up some articles online about it.


Looks like most of the leak happened on the Balfour side and was 400 L of gear oil which sounds like a hell of a lot.  That side of lake has a lot of homes on the water and sees a lot of visitors pass through.  Hopefully, it can get cleaned up properly and there won't be any lasting environmental damage.  It will also take a month to repair the main ferry leaving the little ferry to do all the work.
