Listuguj First Nation Air Quality Monitoring

The Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government Emergency Management Team is pleased to announce our participation in the Forest Fire Smoke ‘Skweda’ Project. This trial project was developed by the Grand Conseil de la Nation Waban-Aki (GCNWA), located in Wôlinak, Quebec. The project aims to improve community preparedness for fire smoke events.

Forest fire season creates smoke plumes that could affect our community and the health of our population. The objective of the project is to install sensors to monitor community air quality, as well as develop risk mitigation strategies and identify decision-making tools to increase the level of community resilience to these events.

Paul-Emile Auger, Emergency Management Specialist – Technical Services with the GCNWA, along with his team were in Listuguj on August 13, 2020 to work with our Public Works team to install the first of two air quality monitors. These devices will allow the Emergency Management team to obtain air quality data in real-time and implement effective measures for fire smoke emergency management.

Help Prevent Sewer Backups

The Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government would like to advise the General Public to refrain from flushing disposable wipes which include the cottonelle wipes, rags, and any other fabric type product in your toilet. 

These products do not break down in the system and as a result it will clog up your sanitary/wastewater pipes, causing unpleasant sewer backups in your residence. 

This type of damage is rarely covered by the insurance companies, and these actions also cause serious malfunctions in the Sewage Lift Stations consequently creating a significant expense to the Homeowner and the LMG. 

Your cooperation on this potentially serious issue would be greatly appreciated.
