No to the discharge of American leachate, still containing PFAS, into Lake Memphremagog

Memphremagog Conservation (MCI), a non-profit working for the preservation of Lake Memphremagog and its watershed, is worried. Recently, the American landfill site in Coventry, situated near Lake Memphremagog, was authorized to build a plant to treat the leachate (garbage juice) flowing from the site. This ‘treated’ water will necessarily be discharged into Lake Memphremagog, source of drinking water for 175,000 Quebeckers.
