Bridge with abutments (L400) on Cormier road (gravel road) upstream from the "mine à chaux". Rip-rap around the bridge. The river follows the road for a long distance. The buffer zone is very thin at certain spots. Access to old gravel quarry beside the brook. Lots of mining activity in the region. Very big artificial ponds (from old mining quarry) in the area.

Action Required:

A follow-up is required to monitor the effects of the mine on the river.
