Workshop on Nutrient Management for homeowners and aquaculture operators: 7pm at York Community Centre. Learn how you can help prevent problems associated with too much nitrate in the environment, such as techniques for maintenance of your septic system and lawn management. For Aquaculture operators, how does the nutrient loading of our groundwater effect your operations? What is the current situation in Tracadie Bay with the new opening to the bay? We will be offering free nitrate testing of your water. Sample collection bottles are available at our May 26th AGM, any Access PEI location, or by calling 902-314-9293.
