Val-Jalbert hydroelectric power station: missing authorizations


Contrary to what was declared by Mr. Denis Taillon, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Société de l'énergie sociale du Lac-Saint-Jean as part of a report broadcast by Radio-Canada on Saturday July 27, not all authorizations have been issued to move forward with the construction of a hydroelectric power station in Val-Jalbert.

Indeed, the Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment, Wildlife and Parks (MDDEFP) confirmed last week that the developer was still missing three or four authorizations before he could begin work. It is clear that this does not seem to bother him since the work was started illegally several months ago.
