FREDERICTON (CNB) - A Saint-Jacques-area contracting company has been charged by the Department of Environment with violating a watershed-protected area designation order under the Clean Water Act.
The department alleges that D.L. St. Onge Enterprise Inc., 9 Michaud St., Saint-Jacques, failed to comply with forest harvesting restrictions within the Iroquois River watershed between Nov. 11, 2006, and Jan. 1, 2007.
The company is scheduled to go to trial in Edmundston provincial court on March 13, 2009.
Environment Minister Roland Haché encourages all New Brunswickers to be responsible stewards of the environment and to report any infraction of environmental regulations in the province.
