A landslide took place into Glynmill Pond taking with it a sewer line from Cobb Lane. Part of Cobb Lane also slid into the pond. This raised concerns regarding sewage pollution into water supply for Bowater Paper Mill. A road in the same area experienced another failure on Sept 28, 1975. Story appears in Humber Log Oct 1, 1975
