This image shows silt runoff from the temporary access road built in the fall of 2009 into the proposed Kingston Cliffs development. In this photo, turbid water in the ditch runs for about a half a kilometre after a heavy rainfall in late March 2010. Run-off from the water in this ditch eventually finds its way into Puddington Lake Brook. In addition, after a very heavy rainfall in October 2009 not long after the road was put in, route 845 was flooded to the point where it had to be blocked off to traffic.  There weren't any barriers of any kind put in place by the developer to prevent silt runoff from the temporary access road until sometime after the end of March 2010.
