Asvisory of the Day



This story is brought to you in part by Biomass Recycle

On August 24, 2017, a Do Not Consume (DNC) advisory for Parc du lac Témiscouata, a Québec national park, was listed on the website of the Ministère de Développement durable. Environnement, et Lutte contre les changements climatiques (MDDELCC). The notice points to Petit lac Touladi, though no additional information regarding why the advisory was issued was provided. Further, there was no mention of it on the park's website.

To get a sense of what was happening we spoke with Denis Ouellete, Park Director. What Ouellette told us was "there was a temporary irregularity" found in test results. He assured us that the issue only affects the administrative installations and does not impact the camp sites.

Ouellette said, "that is why we have that advisory, and we will continue to perform tests." This situation is not new, he said "this has happened in the past." He suggested that the weather has had an impact on the aquifers stating, "it did not rain much this summer."

Visitors to the park should not be alarmed, Ouellette underlined that "it is nothing major, really only affects the administration at Petit lac Touladi." No timetable for when the advisory will be lifted was provided.
