Sherbrooke praises stability in water quality report

The City of Sherbrooke is reporting a stable water quality at its municipal beaches and in its rivers following a series of reports tabled at Tuesday night’s City Council meeting. The results are being attributed to close to a decade of work by teams from the Urban Infrastructure Ser-vice to find and repair illegal sewer connections, as well as other actions such as the separa-tion of sewers, the implementation of erosion and sediment control measures on construction sites, and shoreline restoration.
According to the reports, the water in the Magog River and its tributaries was considered to be of good or “satisfactory” quality between 2019 and 2021. The Saint-François river and its tribu-taries, meanwhile, merited a grade that varied between “satisfactory” and “questionable” over the same period of time. The reports did note an improvement in 2020 and 2021, however.
