Chapter V – Roads, sandpits and forest infrastructures Division VI – Piling areas, forest camps and facilities used to operate a sugar bush §2. Forest camps

Section 128

A forest camp area may not be set up within 30 m of an open peat bog, a swamp, a riparian shrub marsh, a lake or a watercourse. Organic matter from the setting up of a forest camp area must be piled more than 20 m from those environments for its reuse. The distances are measured from the perimeter of the peat bog, the swamp or the marsh or from the upper limit of the shore of the lake or the bank of the watercourse. In the presence of a riparian ecotone, the measurement is made from the limit of the ecotone farthest from the environment to be protected.
