Brookfield Gardens Inc. has been charged with three counts under the Environmental Protection Act in connection with an August fish kill in North River.
The Department of Environment, Labour and Justice’s public safety division laid the charges under the act's watercourse and wetland protection regulations.
The company is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 24 to answer the charges.
Charges arose from the investigation of a reported fish kill on the North River on Aug. 9. The charges are the result of the cultivation of an agricultural crop in the North Milton area.
The charges allege the farm violated regulations relating to cultivating a crop within 15 metres of a watercourse and cultivating crops on land with a slope.
