    • Annual Plum Pox Virus Survey - Canadian Food Inspection Agency

      Description

      On May 26th, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) initiated the annual summer residential survey for the Plum Pox Virus (PPV), which is a serious disease of plants that threatens Canada's stone fruit industry.  Portions of the Niagara Region and the City of Hamilton are currently under federal quarantine for PPV and regulations are in place to prevent the spread of this pest outside of this area.   

      In order to conduct the survey, CFIA Inspectors will be going door-to-door to sample PPV-susceptible plant species and/or verify compliance with the current propagation ban, which prohibits anyone in the quarantine area from producing trees and plants that are susceptible to the virus.  The survey will be conducted within the cities of Stoney Creek, Lincoln, Grimsby, Beamsville, Vineland, Jordan, St. Catharines, Thorold, Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake and will conclude by the end of September 2019.  This means that property owners in these cities may see CFIA inspectors on their property.  CFIA staff will have CFIA identification badges and will wear an orange safety vest so that they are easily identifiable to city staff and members of the public. 

      Please click the link for the public notice.

      A pest fact sheet and additional information on PPV is available on the CFIA website:

    • Temporary Closure - Millennium Trail from Whirlpool Rd to Thorold Stone Rd

      Description

      The Millennium Trail from Whirlpool Road to Thorold Stone Road will have limited access during select periods this summer.

      Stanley Transmission Station (TS) is owned by Hydro One Networks Inc. and situated on Ontario Power Generation property on Stanley Avenue, immediately south of the Region of Niagara Waste Water Treatment Station.  The City of Niagara Falls Millennium Trail, including its access points from Stanley Avenue are located on all sides of the Stanley TS enclosure and is pursuant to a license agreement with OPG.

      Hydro One must undertake work at Stanley Transmission Station (TS) that will expand the footprint of the TS enclosure. Therefore public access between the TS and the OPG Power Canal must be restricted until this work is completed.

      The trail will be closed during these dates:

      August 18, 2019 to August 23, 2019 in order to string new conductors.

      September 23, 2019 to September 27, 2019 in order to remove the old conductors.

      During these identified times of disruption, Hydro One will have spotters on either side of the trail as the conductors are moved to ensure the safety of the public.  

      Hydro One will provide signs regarding the closure and post them on the construction fence.

      Thank you for your cooperation and patience during this work.

      If you have any questions please contact Nick Golia, Project Manager at 905-356-7521 ext. 4290.
