Shrubs orders

Each year, the Municipality, in collaboration with MRC de Memphrémagog, offers shrubs at a reduced cost to its citizens.

Shrubs for shorelines will be available for spring 2022. There will be no distribution this fall.
Order deadline: May 6, 2022
Delivery date: Saturday, May 21, 2022, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Ecocentre (5 West Hill Road, Mansonville)

The species offered are native, recommended for reforestation of shorelines, easy to adapt and require little special care after planting. New for 2022: Two species of riparian adapted trees will be offered in this year’s distribution. The sizes offered will be identical to the shrubs. The trees and shrubs will be available in two different sizes: small (lot of 5: $15.00) and large ($6.75).

Obstruction in a watercourse

The management of watercourse obstructions, such as those caused by beaver dams, is a responsability of the Municipality when the obstruction threatens the safety of people or property. The Municipality also intervenes when beaver dams cause damage to the municipal road network.If you notice any obstruction of a watercourse, caused by a beaver, an ice jam or other object, please contact the Municipality at 450-292-3313.

Tributaries Sampling

The ‘MRC of Memphrémagog’ has been coordinating, at the request of municipalities, the tributary sampling program since 1998.

Over the years, the sampling program has become an important tool in integrated watershed management because it provides a fair and up-to-date picture of the state of the watercourse.

It is also interesting to be able to follow the evolution of water quality following the implementation of corrective measures or the adoption of regulations such as those, among others, to prohibit the maintenance of the lawn by riparian zone or the implementation of erosion control measures.
