The City of Hamilton’s Public Works department is considering changes to some culverts in the wake of Finnigan Danne’s death.
Public Works spokesperson Jasmine Graham told the Spectator the department will first await information about the circumstances of the Dundas boy’s death and will then examine the culvert involved and others like it.
Graham says grates are usually only installed on the inlet to capture debris and the 70 metre structure where Danne’s body was found didn’t have a recent history of debris.
The body of the 11 year old boy was found submerged in water in the culvert a day after he went missing.
The Canadian Press has reported the boy may have been searching for his cat when he went missing.
