Mr. Speaker, in my riding of Compton—Stanstead, two businesses—La Sagesse de l’eau and the Fitch Bay marina—decided to revitalize a beach on Fitch Bay in Memphrémagog Lake.
This beach had problems with blue-green algae and odours. Thanks to various measures, including a filter marsh made up of new varieties of plants provided by La Sagesse de l’eau as well as management of plants encircling the beach area, the Township of Stanstead was able to meet its goal of reducing blue-green algae in the water.
In addition, this project placed second among the entrants for the Awards for Innovation in Infrastructure from Quebec's Ministère des Affaires municipales et des Régions. I would like to pay tribute to Stéphane and José Pouliot and their businesses, which developed this innovative project.
