The Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake has not been able to identify the source of a sewer spill that spewed carrots, sausages and other debris onto Mary Street, a spokesperson says.

A photo caption in The Lake Report on April 18 quoted a town employee saying that the blockage might have been caused by Backhouse Restaurant, which is located in the plaza near where the spill occurred.

Backhouse owner and head chef Ryan Crawford phoned the paper this week and is adamant it wasn’t caused by Backhouse.

Town spokesperson Victoria Steele said there is no way to pinpoint what caused the spill.
