Flood monitoring: Update

On May 9, 2018 at 11 am, the level of Lac des Deux Montagnes is 23.57 meters (down) according to the measures of the site Vigilance: flood monitoring of the Ministry of Public Security (MSP) . The authorities of the City of Deux-Montagnes follow the evolution hour by hour and remain in permanent contact with the Ministry of Public Security, Hydro Météo and the Quebec Water Network. The most recent forecasts can be optimistic for the next few days, but the emergency services and public works of the City of Deux-Montagnes remain alert. In the event that the level of water threatens to flood some areas of the city like last year, a temporary dyke would be installed. Permission to install the temporary dyke was given by the Ministry of the Environment from a pre-established level and plan. This level has not been reached yet. The City of Deux-Montagnes can not improvise in this type of protection facility since strict environmental standards regulate this kind of intervention on the edge of water bodies. Citizens can rest assured that the responsible authorities of the City are ready to intervene in accordance with the plan if necessary.
