Dominion diving was spotted lowering Concrete shapes into the harbor off Point Pleasent park. The Reef balls were designed to promote marine life, and are being deployed in consultation with Clean Nova Scotia.
The Reef balls were born out of a desire to offset damaged caused to the Marine environment by the construction of Piers and docks. If an area is damaged due to construction, the use of these shapes can allow an equivalent environment to be created where there was not one previously.
Dominion and Clean NS are deploying 100 of these blocks – 50 off Point Pleasant, and 50 more off Mcnabs island.
