Fort Erie residents forced to move after raw sewage leak
A number of residents are homeless after a raw sewage leak closed down a Fort Erie motel and campground.
Niagara Region Public Health issued a notice that Frenchman's Creek Park Motel and Campground would be closed because of a sewage leak which is making its way to public land and waterways.
Campground officials received notice in 2011 that repairs needed to be done to their sewage system in order to comply with safety and health requirements. Those repairs were not done, the town says.
The residents have been directed to Fort Erie Salvation army to help find shelters or affordable housing options.
