Red Hill Creek

Red Hill Creek Hamilton

Stoney Creek, Ontario, Canada

This is a moving stream that has a highway following the length of it. It drains into Hamilton Harbor. The Red Hill Highway contaminates the creek with chloride runoff. There is also numerous storm sewers that contribute ecoli to the creek because of illegal cross connections in the houses around it. There is also combined sewer overflows that drain into the creek if there is a large amount of precipitation that the Woodward Street water plant can not handle.
