Val-des-Monts is developing a watershed management plan and it wants input from people who live or have cottages there.

The plan will covers the Blanche Ouest River watershed, which takes in St. Pierre de Wakefield, Val-des-Monts and McGregor Lake, as well as smaller lakes and rivers.

The municipality says a draft plan addresses “the major environmental issues facing our region and puts forward solutions designed to protect, restore and properly develop our water resources. Specifically, the plan details the watershed area and its challenges, recommends objectives and policy directions and lists specific measures to that end.
