Lastest news

On Friday, August 2, 2019, Borough Management and Mayor Dimitrios (Jim) Beis met with the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, Andrée Laforest, in Quebec City, who listened very carefully to the demands and concerns of our Borough and its residents.

Since this meeting, please note that the contact information for those who registered before Tuesday, August 6, has already been sent to the Ministry in Quebec City.  We continue to take the names and addresses of people who wish to be removed from the zone until August 19, 2019, when we will send the final list to the government as required. We do not know what will happen next but be assured that we will keep you informed. The entire municipal administration is mobilized and working to resolve the situation as quickly as possible and to find a viable common ground with government authorities on this issue.

According to the Ministry, the ZIS map does not mean that houses are in flood risk areas, but that they are in an area where the moratorium will apply until the government can consider long-term solutions to prevent flooding. Inevitably some addresses will remain in the area but the Ministry has assured us that it will do so on a case-by-case basis for exceptional situations. Please be assured that we will defend the rights of our citizens to the best of our ability.


Daily watch of the state of the Rivière des Prairies

As a preventive measure, the borough of Pierrefonds-Roxboro has been conducting a daily watch since the start of the 2019 spring flood to monitor the state of the Rivière des Prairies.

A total of 6 different water points are evaluated each day by a land surveyor who compiles the collected data. Citizens are invited to follow the Borough on Facebook to find regular updates about the river fluctuation levels and to subscribe to the borough's newsletter to receive up-to-date information and tips.

Return to normal and reintegration

The Ville de Montréal allows for progressive reintegration of residences.

Lower water levels enable us to move on to recovery mode in all neighborhoods affected by the spring flood. The health and safety of citizens who will return to their homes are our utmost priorities. Multidisciplinary teams are on site to help citizens recover their homes. The city asks for the public's cooperation in order to restore the situation in affected areas as effectively as possible, and to help streamline cleaning efforts.

Information meeting for flood victims with the Ministère de la Sécurité Publique

Following the spring flood of 2019, the Borough worked in collaboration with the Ministère de la Sécurité Publique(MSP)  to organize an information meeting for flood victims.  A meeting was scheduled for Wednesday, June 12 at 7 p.m., at the Pierrefonds cultural centre (13850, boulevard Gouin Ouest  Gouin).

Protection Dike Systems

The Borough has implemented several preventive mitigations measures on the field to protect vulnerable areas.

For example, our Public Works crew  tested on site the new modern and effective protection dike systems acquired by the Borough. A "MuscleWalls" and "FloodStop" as seen on the images can replace up to 300 sandbags and takes less than an hour to install, requiring few man power for installation.

This initiative allows the training and preparation of our teams to rapidly and strategically install the various systems, in the event of a flood or other disaster should occur. Great work done by our Public Works crews!


Distribution of door hangers in flood zones

The Borough will proceed with the distribution of door hangers to residences located in flood zones in the coming days.

This door hanger aims to raise awareness about the various channels of communication implemented by the Borough to stay informed during this spring flood season. 

We invite you to keep this door hanger and to subscribe to these essential communication channels.
