Permanent dike: ongoing drilling

Deux-Montagnes, August 7, 2019 – As already announced, work on the permanent dike will take place during the summer and will continue until December. As of today, August 7, we wish to inform lakeside citizens that drilling is underway along the  lac des Deux-Montagnes, where the dike will be built. Some of this drilling will be done in the backyard of private properties.

Drilling will enable us to characterize soils and rock where protective structures are to be built against flooding, to determine the level of groundwater and to make relevant geotechnical recommendations for the next steps related to this work.

Once again, the City wishes to thank the lakeside residents for their patience during this period when the tranquility of their backyards is disturbed.

It should be remembered that lakeside residents wishing to start work on their protective structure must obtain a certificate of authorization from the Public Works Department. To find out how to obtain it, citizens are invited to contact tthis dept. at 450 473-4688.
