128. The Minister of the Environment and the Deputy Minister of the Environment, as the case may be, as regards waterworks, sewer and water treatment plants or works, shall not exercise as regards any municipality in the territory of the Community the powers contemplated in sections 29, 32, 34, 35, 41 and 43 of the Environment Quality Act (chapter Q-2), without calling upon the executive committee of the Community to make the representations it considers appropriate, unless it has filed its written consent.
When exercising the powers provided for in section 35 of the Environment Quality Act, the Minister shall order the execution of intermunicipal works by the municipalities he designates unless the executive committee of the Community has informed him that the Community agrees to carry out such works. In the latter case, he shall not order the execution thereof except by the Community. He shall not establish the apportionment of the cost of the works and the maintenance and operating costs thereof, determine the method of payment or fix the indemnity, periodic or otherwise, payable by the municipalities in the territory of the Community for the use of the works or services provided, before calling upon the Community to make its representations on this matter.
