Information for Residents
Wild parsnip has been found growing in parts of Blackburn Hamlet. This invasive species can cause health problems if handled incorrectly. Residents are cautioned to learn how to recognize wild parsnip and learn to clear it from private property safely and to report the presence of wild parsnip on city property.
Lafarge operates a quarry in the Hamlet and blasting is part of their operations.
