Mosquitoes in our area have tested positive for the West Nile virus. However, there have been no human cases reported in our region.

“The Eastern Ontario Health Unit has been actively monitoring mosquitoes for West Nile virus” says Dr. Paul Roumeliotis, Medical Officer of Health. “This finding shows that West Nile virus remains a concern in our area. Residents should be aware and take the necessary precautions to protect themselves and their families.”

Lyme disease alert

The Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU) is advising residents that black-legged ticks, which can spread Lyme disease to humans, are being found in a growing number of locations across the five eastern counties.

In Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry and Prescott-Russell, at least 20 per cent of black-legged ticks are carrying the Lyme bacteria, which is why the disease is now considered endemic, or well established, in this region.

Boater advisory

Ontario Power Generation Corporation advises users of the St. Lawrence River that the gates used for recreational passage at Iroquois Dam remain closed. These gates were closed due to significantly above average water flow and will remain lowered until conditions allow for safe passage through these gates. Boaters are advised that they will need to use the Iroquois Lock for passage.

Weed harvester returns

publisher Jul 13, 2017 - 10:37am

Watch for a return of the weed harvester to Mill Pond in Alexandria July 16 as North Glengarry continues its “aggressive strategy” against Canada Waterweeds (Elodea canadensis).

Regulations prevent the weed removal being carried out before July 15. “If we were to begin earlier, we would risk interrupting the spawning season of the large and small-mouth bass, and other fish that call Mill Pond their home,” the township says.
