BLUE PATROL

The new Blue Patrol does not replace the current MRC ’s patrol whose time is divided between 3 lakes and who only gives tickets. The Blue Patrol is Lake Massawippi’s very own and works full-time on everything related to quality of life: shorelines, water quality, blue-green algae, noise, speed, weed beds, communication, sensitization. Based on usability principles, cordiality and conciliation, the Blue Patrol is a permanent player on the lake, for you, with you.
