City hopes to gull waterfowl with new netting

There will be a public meeting to discuss the proposed gull netting project at Centre Island Beach on Sept. 26 at 7:30 p.m. at the Ward’s Island Association.

There is a 7:15 Boat leaving the city to Ward’s Dock.

The project involves installing multiple poles along the rock break wall from the pier west to the beaches end with corresponding poles well behind the beach. Multiple wires and filaments would be strung back and forth pole to pole to stop gulls from landing. In turn it is then hoped that the water quality of the swimming area would be improved.

Representatives from Toronto Water will be present to answer various questions, regarding sizes, costs, impacts and expected results.

For those not able to attend, please contact Warren Hoselton and he will forward any questions or comments to the Toronto Water Authorities.
