By StittsvilleCentral (based on CBC), July 21, 2017

An Ottawa construction company convicted of discharging construction sediment into a drain that flows into the Jock River in 2013 has been fined $275,000.

Thomas Cavanagh Construction Limited was convicted in June of four charges under the Ontario Water Resources Act, according to Ontario’s environment ministry.

The construction company was installing stormwater infrastructure at the Blackstone community in South Kanata in 2013 when ministry inspectors noted excessive sediment getting into the man-made Monahan Drain wetland, which drains into the Jock River.
