Who are we?
LAKE PROTECTION IS OUR BUSINESS!
In order to maintain the quality of our lake, we have formed a committee of volunteers who will see to preserving and improving the quality and tranquility of its environment with the help of all its members.
The quality of life and the value of our residences are associated with the quality of our lake.
ENVIRONMETAL AND SAFETY CODE OF CONDUCT FOR LAC ARGENTÉ USERS
The purpose of the Lac Argenté environmental and safety code of conduct is to enjoy water sports, while ensuring that the quality of the water and the calm and natural character of the lake are maintained.
1. Be courteous at all times.
2. Wake boats and jet skis are not welcome on the lake.
3. Avoid rapid motorboats departures in shallow water areas to avoid disturbing sediments and aquatic plants.
4. Always navigate minimizing wave. This help to protect the shoreline.
5. Limit your speed to less than 30 meters of the shore.
6. When buying or replacing a motor, give preference to four (4) stroke motors or the new technologies of certain two (2) stroke motors (less polluting than old two (2) stroke motors).
7. For boats equipped with a 10 hp motor or more, the boat licence number, issued by the federal government, must be displayed on both sides of the boat.
8. The Lake Association sticker must also be displayed at all times for all those who are members of the Lac Argenté Residents Association.
9. All motorized or non-motorized boats, kayaks, padel boards, canoes, pedal boats and windsurfers must be washed at the municipality and have a municipal sticker to be on the lake. The municipal sticker proving that your boat has been washed must be visible at all times for all boats.
10. All boats, motorized or not, must be washed if they have been used in other waterways, even if they already have a municipal sticker.
11. Motorized boats must be kept away from swimmers.
12. It is recommended that the swimmers who swim across the lake or away from the shore be clearly identified or accompanied by a boat.
13. Always wear a floatation device when water skiing.
14. Avoid water-skiing or tubing from a motorboat after dark.
15. Boat traffic at night must be in accordance with boating regulations (traffic lights). The nautical safety rules are available on the internet at the following address: https://tc.canada.ca/en/marine-transportation/marine-safety/office-boating-safety
16. Cottage Rentals: The landlord must ensure that all tenants are aware of code of conduct and agree to abide by it.
17. The buoy: In the middle of the lake, in its deepest part, there is a buoy that the Association uses to take water samples for analysis. Under no circumstances should you attach yourself to the buoy, as it could move, which would alter the results of the samples.
18. Launching: To launch or take out of the lake, you can contact Michel Côté at (450) 712-3102.
We therefore ask everyone to see to respect the regulations to protect the shore and the coast of our lake.
