A network of lake committees established by the Yamaska Watershed Organization (OBV Yamaska) last year has seen much success. The network allowed committees from Brome, Bromont, Davignon, Roxton and Waterloo lakes as well as the Yamaska National Park (Choinière reservoir), to discuss environmental issues affecting their water bodies and share their knowledge.
According to the press release, the objective of setting up a network for these committees was to promote concerted action to help them in their mission. These committees are often at arm’s length by citizens who invest themselves voluntarily. They need help to ensure better cohesion in their work and the network responds to this need.
“I am confident that the sharing of information and knowledge between lake committees will continue. We have created relationships that will allow us to be more effective. Today, we feel better equipped to deal with the issues facing our lakes. We could come to share resources between the committees and OBV Yamaska to be more efficient,” stated Christian Roy, Vice President of the Board of Directors of Renaissance Lac Brome.
