Monday, March 5, 2018, 12:21 PM - Workers have begun excavating decades' worth of duck poop and debris from Griffin's Pond in the Halifax Public Gardens.

According to the municipality, the work will be completed in the spring, if the weather behaves.

In August, city officials told the CBC there could be a metre of sludge sitting at the bottom of the pond.

The pond will remain open to the public during the excavation.

Halifax Public Gardens was established in 1874 and was designated a National Historic Site in 1984. In 1991, it became a municipally registered property under the Heritage Property Act.
