In keeping with the regulations of Québec’s Ministère de l’Environnement and the Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal, whether these quarries are in operation or used for other purposes, they are all subject to nuisance mitigation and environmental management measures. In the case of the two former quarries that served as landfill sites, these measures include biogas collection and recovery, as well as wastewater and leachate treatment (at the former Meloche quarry in the Borough of Kirkland and the Saint-Michel Environmental Complex).

Saint-Jacques escarpment

Located near the boundary between the boroughs of Côte-des-Neiges – Notre-Dame-de-Grâce and Le Sud-Ouest, the Saint-Jacques escarpment is a steep slope, where no construction or other work is permitted.

In an effort to curb erosion of the escarpment, the City will provide maintenance of the existing plant cover. The Saint-Jacques escarpment is one of the ten ecoterritories established under the City’s Policy respecting the Protection and Enhancement of the Natural Environment (see Objective 16).
