26. The travel of logging machines is prohibited on the bed of a watercourse, except to construct or remove a bridge or culvert or to place or remove a removable structure. In that case, only one round trip of the logging machine in the watercourse is then allowed on the site of the installation and no work may be done from the bed of the watercourse.
The travel of logging machines is also allowed on the bed of a watercourse to carry out work to install coffer dams and structures to temporarily divert the watercourse, in accordance with section 93.
This section does not apply to the travel of logging machines used to carry out vegetation control activities by the holder of a forestry permit issued for public utility works. However, passing through the fish habitat requires the prior issue of the authorizations required under the Act respecting the conservation and development of wildlife (chapter C-61.1).
