Located in Halton County on the Bruce Trail just steps from Twiss Road are a series of ponds lined with marl that was dug up and dried to use in whitewash, tiles and Climax Bug Killer. The business died off in 1946 when DDT became popular. There are vague ruins of the insecticide plant in the bushes.

that-girl I'm wondering if this is the place where teenagers can be seen swimming and cliff diving in the summer? Or is that another place I'm thinking of....?
