Officials have said that floodwaters that swept through communities along the Saint John River may have contained untreated sewage, fuel or other contaminants, and plants could have been exposed.

Russell says plants, such as fiddleheads, are popular and are harvested along riverbanks at this time of year, but that other wild plants away from the flooded areas are likely safe to eat.

The massive job of cleaning up after the record-breaking flooding is beginning, with special garbage collection in areas such as Maugerville, Chipman, Sheffield starting next Monday.
