A 56-year-old resident of the Quyon sector in the Municipality of Pontiac has been fined $499 after police officers found that he had emptied part of the contents of his septic tank into a ditch at the corner of the street.
MRC des Collines-de-l’Outaouais police said Wednesday that the force had received a phone call from another member of the public reporting to the “leak” that left material from the septic tank not only in the ditch, but also on the road.
