On July 24, engaged Pontiac residents turned up to the MRC offices in Campbell’s Bay to discuss the protection of the region’s watersheds.
The event was hosted by the Agence de Bassin Versant des 7 (ABV7), a non-profit organization with a mandate to protect the seven main watersheds in the region. The group was created in 2004 in response to Quebec’s Water Policy, which was adopted by the provincial government in 2002.
Its objectives were to treat Quebec’s water as a shared heritage of all residents, that needs to be maintained in a sustainable way to protect public health and aquatic ecosystems. Through consultations with stakeholders, they aim to educate and learn from the public.
