The fallout continues to unfold from last month’s flooding in Etobicoke, west of downtown Toronto. During heavy rains, creeks flooded and sewage flowed through the streets while some residents had to evacuate their homes. Now they’re returning to find basements with possible e.coli and toxic mold contamination.
Police are looking for a Scarborough couple after a raid netted a cache of nearly 2,000 marijuana plants in a grow operation earlier this month. As in this case, the emphasis is often put on things like electrical systems modifications, because of inherent danger and also the diversion of the utility as a criminal act. However, mold is often a lingering and persistent problem in former grow houses long after the utility issues have been sorted out – including toxic black mold infestation.
