PARKING LOTS, NORTH BAY


The picture show the holding ponds for the run off water coming from the newly built parking lots at the Educational Centre here in North Bay. I think creating huge parking lots show a lack of foresight. It simply destroys the natural setting around the complex. Instead they could have built a parking garage or better still develop a bettre transit system.

Is this "pond" a permanent fixture? What a great place to breed mosquitos.

Don't it always seem to go

Yes this pond is permanent. It is a catch basin for the runoff from the parking lots. Of course its a breeding ground for mosquitoes but what I think is worse that eventually this polluted water will end up in Lake Nipissing. Pretty sad that an educational institution is so shortsighted.
