The Kahnaw√†:ke Environment Protection Office (KEPO) would like to inform the community that field work will be occurring along the western shoreline of the community (from the Chateauguay River to the entrance to  Recreation Bay) between November 15th and 17th inclusive.

KEPO is undertaking a study to assess the extent and causes of erosion that have occurred along this shoreline and develop solutions to ensure the long-term stability of the land base.

The work will take place on common and privately held lands where permissions were granted to the field team. Visual inspections of the entire shoreline will also be carried out by boat and a drone will be used to determine elevations along the shoreline for mapping purposes.

The work will not require the use of any heavy equipment on the land. KEPO will be overseeing these activities in the field and will be assisted by Shoreplan Engineering, a consultant specializing in coastal engineering.

Findings of this work will be shared and discussed with the community at open house events. The results of the field work and consultation will be compiled in a report for the community, to be completed by the summer of 2018.

If you would like to know more about the project, please contact Patrick Ragaz, Environmental Advisor / Project Coordinator at 450-635-0600.
