95.1. A local municipality may, for the exercise of any of its powers, own and operate a dam.
A local municipality whose territory is included in that of a regional county municipality must, before building a dam or carrying out work on a dam that could affect its impounding capacity or alter the water flow, obtain the authorization of the regional county municipality. If the dam is located in a lake or watercourse under the joint jurisdiction of two or more regional county municipalities, the local municipality must obtain the authorization of both or all of those regional county municipalities or of the board of delegates, as applicable.
Such authorization may be made subject to the local municipality entering into an agreement concerning the operation of the dam.
