The Municipality of the Village of North Hatley is pleased to continue to inform its citizens and the citizens of neighbouring municipalities of the spring flooding situation since our last bulletin.

Since Monday, despite the last rainfalls, the levels of the lake and river, as well as the river flow have been on a continuous decline.  The latest results have permitted the Minister of Public Security to qualify the state of the situation as « normal ».

The weather forecast for the upcoming days indicates a probability of further precipitation.  Surveillance continues by the municipal direction in order to remain up to date on the latest information from the regional direction of civil security and by the Centre d’expertise hydrique du Québec.  Monitoring will also continue to be exercised by the municipality’s public works department.

The municipality’s public works personnel, as well as those of the intermunicipal fire department remain on alert, ready to intervene if necessary.

The municipality will continue to ensure the updating of its Flood-Info section on its web-site at www.northhatley.org and will also use its Infolettre to inform the public if necessary.

Your attention to these updates is appreciated.
