The municipal By-Law currently in force:

Draft By-Laws in progress:

SINCE 2015...

Faced with the awareness of citizens and elected officials, and the fact that some people were washing their boats in places that could have a direct impact on lake water quality, it was in 2015 that the Municipality set up the current washing station. Over the years, the Municipality has followed the evolution of techniques and research on the subject, and knew that improvements could be made. In 2023, the presence of aquatic invasive species was confirmed in 2 lakes on its territory, notably the Chinese Mystery Snail.

2024: 9 years later, the Municipal Council wishes to amend the By-Law and modernize its washing facilities to ensure that all types of boats navigating the water bodies in the Township of Wentworth avoid putting them at risk.

This season will be a period of transition, without changing the goal, which is to prevent the invasion of water bodies by AIS, avoid their spread, maintain water quality and ensure the safe use of water bodies on its territory.

**Look out for our upcoming newsletters to follow the progress of the implementation of the new regulation and the new automated hot water system installations**

Be safe and enjoy the season!
