A “localized emergency” remains in effect in Lambton Shores for Indian Hills Golf Course and the surrounding subdivision.

Geyser-like eruptions were discovered in a pond on the golf course Wednesday morning, the result of naturally occurring gases being released from the ground.

Deputy Mayor Doug Cook says the declaration, made late yesterday afternoon, allows the municipality to engage provincial resources to help determine the extent of the emergency.

Indian Hills Assistant Pro Chris O’Connell says the course is closed until further notice.

Municipal officials and representatives from the Ministry of Natural Resources met this morning to determine the next steps.
