The elected officials of the MRCVG denounce SOPFEU's decision

The Council of MRC Vallée-de-la-Gatineau is offended by the actions of the Board of Directors of the Société de protection des forêts contre le feu (SOPFEU). The mayors ask that the status of Maniwaki as a main base be maintained and that all activities currently carried out there be kept.

Unanimously, the elected officials of the Gatineau Valley have mandated the MRCVG warden, Chantal Lamarche, to set up an emergency committee. This outcry has been noted among elected officials, but also among the population and the business community to avoid any restructuring that would abolish or provide for the relocation of positions currently established in Maniwaki.

Special measures in red zone

The special emergency measures announced April 13, 2021, by the Quebec government will apply from April 14, 2021, at 8:00 p.m. for the entire Outaouais region until April 25, 2021.

Extension of Paugan Power Station inter-link Closure to April 9, 2021

Hydro-Quebec wishes to advise the public that it will need to extend the closure of the Paugan power Station inter-link connecting the municipalities of Low and Denholm. The link will be closed from Monday to Friday until April 9, 2021. However, the link will be open for travel on weekends. Specifically, access will be open to the public from Friday evening to Monday morning. The link will also be open on Good Friday (April 2) and Easter Monday (April 5). "The organization of the work is complex due to the limited space on the plant and the movement of workers and machinery. We have to extend the shutdown in order to carry out all the work safely," says Alain Paquette, advisor - community relations at Hydro-Québec.

Priority to safety
Let's recall that Hydro-Quebec is carrying out, among other things, some electrical work on the spillway and is setting up a prefabricated building that will house equipment. "In an effort to increase user safety, we will also be raising the guardrail along the edge of the link," adds Paquette.

St. Michael's High School
Students attending St. Michael's High School in Low use the inter-link daily. The Hydro-Québec site manager proactively met with the school principal to offer support. "Sensitive to the situation, we are willing to get students across safely during the work period," concludes Alain Paquette.

Signs are being installed on both sides of the inter-river link to advise users of the detour routes to be taken. To cross the Gatineau River, users must use the bridge on Newcommon Road in the municipality of La Pêche.

Hydro-Québec would like to thank the public for their cooperation.
