You might say stuff happens.

There was no significant environmental impact from roughly 1,500 litres of sewage that spilled when a truck crashed on the Trans Canada Highway May 2.

The Ministry of Environment’s assessment is based on “the location, containment and cleanup activities.

Craigflower Creek is about one kilometre from the crash site and was not affected. The closest body of water, Thetis Lake, is uphill from the crash site and half a kilometre away and had no contact with the spill.

The truck was carrying a total of 5,400 litres of sewage. Fire crews and environmental contractors led the cleanup at the time of the accident. All spilled sewage has now been cleaned up.
