Work stoppage on chemin Gauvin
August 6, 2020

In the fall of 2019, the Municipality of La Pêche began corrective work on Chemin Gauvin in response to the flooding that occurred that spring. The purpose was to provide residents with lasting protection against spring flooding. In November 2019, while construction was underway, the Municipality received a notice of non-compliance from Ministère de l’Environnement et de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques (MELCC). The Municipality was required to stop all work on Chemin Gauvin immediately until further notice.

To comply with MELCC requirements, the Municipality of La Pêche brought in two environmental experts to advise it on how to proceed. Those two experts are now working hard to find solutions so that the Municipality can resume construction on Chemin Gauvin.

Rest assured that the Municipality of La Pêche is doing everything in its power to resolve this situation as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
