Chambly Canal National Historic Site
Hydro-Québec Vegetation Management
Chambly, Quebec, July 7, 2014 –
Parks Canada wishes to inform the public that Hydro-Québec will be conducting work on both Saint-Jacques Street in Chambly and Sainte-Thérèse
Street in Carignan. This work will involve cutting down four trees that pose a danger to the electrical grid, and pruning trees in 25 line spans
(a span is the portion of line between two consecutive poles) at the Chambly Canal National Historic Site.
The work will be carried out over several days, from now until August 15, 2014. The path at the Chambly Canal will be marginally impacted at the respective sections during the entire work period. Hydro-Québec trucks may be required to travel on the path. To ensure safety, work areas will be marked off with cones. Parks Canada asks everyone to exercise patience and caution, in addition to respecting the temporary signage.
Parks Canada’s five historic canals in Quebec have played a key role in the commercial, industrial and social development of Canada. With their outstanding natural beauty and rich cultural heritage, these exceptional attractions have become a must for bike rides, picnics and walks for residents, hikers and boaters alike.
