A Lloydminster man has been fined after altering a shoreline without a permit.
In a recent decision by a provincial court in Loon Lake, Reid Keebaugh was forced to pay $15,400 after pleading guilty to altering the shoreline of Makwa Lake, located west of the city of Meadow Lake.
The offence took place in September of 2013, when conservation officers received a complaint of work being done on the shoreline to remove a hillside cabin, in order construct a new one. The person dong the work did not have an Aquatic Habitat Protection Permit.
Altering a creek or lake shoreline without a permit carries a maximum fine of $1 million.
The province asks that anyone who witnesses environmental offences call the Turn in Poachers line at 1-800-667-7651 to report it.
