Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

The City of Ma­gog re­cently gave five grants to lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tions that pro­tect lo­cal lakes and rivers. The As­so­ci­a­tion pour la preser­va­tion du lac Ma­gog, the So­ci­ete de Lac Lover­ing, Mem­phrem­a­gog Con­ser­va­tion Inc., the As­so­ci­a­tion de pro­tec­tion et d’ame­nage­ment du ruis­seau Cas­tel and the Club de Chasse et Peche des 4 Loups de Ma­gog will all share the $16,000.

“Th­ese grants fall within Ma­gog’s strate­gic plan, which fore­sees ac­tions that aim to pre­serve our nat­u­ral habi­tats,” said Ma­gog mayor, Vicki May Hamm. “Help­ing or­ga­ni­za­tions that work di­rectly on this thanks to their vol­un­teers is for us a way to salute their ef­forts and help them con­tinue with their projects that ben­e­fit the qual­ity of our lake wa­ter,” she added.

“We are work­ing in col­lab­o­ra­tion with wa­ter pro­tec­tion as­so­ci­a­tions to put in place con­crete ac­tions. The work ac­com­plished by th­ese or­ga­ni­za­tions is cru­cial for the sur­vival of our wa­ters. We are count­ing on their work to help ap­ply the new reg­u­la­tions to pro­tect the shores,” com­mented El­yse Me­nard, the co­or­di­na­tor of the En­vi­ron­ment Depart­ment with the city.
