Flood recovery
 
Champlain, May 10, 2019 - In anticipation of the receding flood water levels, Champlain Township is preparing to assist in the clean-up efforts of those affected by the flood.
 
The Township will be providing one 30 or 40 yard waste container in each of the following areas; Domaine Chartrand, Dufour St., Montpetit St., and Des Chalets St. These waste containers will be available to dispose of any building, house, and yard materials etc. that were damaged and not salvageable.  These containers are strictly for use by those properties affected by the 2019 flood.  If you have any tree branches, logs or stumps, please do not deposit them into these waste containers, you will be permitted to bring them to the Municipal Landfill Site, free of charge.  We ask that you contact the Township’s Administration Office at 613-678-3003 to register your property information so that we can generate a list for the Landfill Site Attendant.
 
The Township will also be helping out homeowners with the removal of any sandbag walls.  This date has not yet been determined however, the Township will communicate with the public again once it has been decided.  If you wish to remove your sandbag wall before this time, we ask that you contact the Township’s Administration Office at 613-678-3003 to let us know so that we may advise you on the preferred location to place them.  
 
As we begin in the flood clean up and recovery process we continue to monitor and respond to everyone’s health and safety concerns in the affected and surrounding flood areas. The Township will provide information to the public on our Website and Facebook page regarding the clean-up procedures.  
 
We thank you in advance for your continued cooperation during this difficult time.
