Protection of watercourses

Shrubs orders

The time has come again for you to order your trees and shrubs destined to revegetate riparian strips! Every year the MRC Memphrémagog provides us a list of beautiful shrubs and trees that can help stabilize the soil, cut the amount of wind along a shoreline, provide shade, and provide beauty to the area. You can find this list below in both French and English. If you live near a lake or waterway and would like to order some plants, please fill out the following form. Specify your name, telephone number, email address, and the lake or waterway that you are revegetating. Fill in the form indicating how many of each plant you would like to order. Note that small plants come in batches of 5. Please then send in your orders to the municipality. Attach a check or come in and pay cash or debit upfront beforehand. All payments must be done beforehand.

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.
