Subject: Town of Saint-Lazare and Hydro-Québec provide update on special long-term vegetation control project
Dear Sir or Madam:
Since April 2017, Hydro-Québec, with the support of the Town of Saint-Lazare, has been performing large-scale vegetation control in the municipality. The aim of the special project, which involves pruning or cutting down weakened trees growing near power lines, is to make the grid less vulnerable and ensure public safety. (See map of areas covered below.)
Most major power outages in Québec are caused by vegetation coming into contact with power lines. Weather events—which are increasingly numerous and severe—also have a direct impact on the number of outages and service restoration times. The denser the vegetation and the closer it is to power lines, the more challenging it becomes for Hydro-Québec crews to work.
Saint-Lazare residents are already enjoying better service thanks to the project. We would now like to invite you to an information session, where we will present a progress report and answer your questions:

Saint-Lazare Community Centre (1301, rue du Bois)
Thank you for your cooperation, which has made the special project a success. We look forward to seeing you at the information session.
