MoP consults on new boat launch

Chris Lowrey
More than 75 people attended a public consultation about the location of a new boat launch in the Municipality of Pontiac.
The original boat launch located on Tremblay Road was closed in October of 2016 by the Quebec Ministry of Environment because the boat launch was made of sand and gravel, which could send excess sediment into the Ottawa River.
The consultation was held on Feb. 27 at the Luskville Community Centre.
The firm Argus Environment carried out a feasibility study examining three different locations for a boat launch location: Terry Fox Road, Sapinière Road and Tremblay Road.
The cost could range from $364,100 to $408,600 depending on which option the municipality chooses.
