Lawn Watering Restriction Notice - LIFTED

UPDATE, JUNE 2: NOTICE LIFTED. You may now water your lawn according to the usual City rules.


May 27th 

Important message - The Agglomeration of Montréal would like to advise residents whose drinking water comes from the Pierrefonds drinking water plant, which includes residents of Pierrefonds-Roxboro, L'Île-Bizard–Sainte-Geneviève, Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue and Senneville, that a lawn watering restriction notice has come into effect on May 27 and will remain in effect until further notice. This notice was issued due to repair work at the plant, the consumption of drinking water recorded over the past few days and the current heat wave.

At present, consumption of drinking water is reaching the plant’s maximum capacity, primarily due to pool filling and the use of sprinklers and hoses to water lawns. Small gestures, such as using a watering can to water your plants, will ensure the supply is continuous and reliable over the next few days.

Repair work at the Pierrefonds plant aims to complete modernization of the plant and boost its capacity for summer 2020.

Residents can refer to the by-law concerning water use at the following address:

Montréal thanks residents for their understanding and cooperation.


Removal of dangerous trees on rue Perrault

May 27 to 29

Botanica Strathmore Arboriculture, a company hired by the City of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, will proceed to the removal of ten trees located along rue Perrault this week, from Wednesday, May 27 to Friday, May 29 .

These ash trees are unfortunately infected with the emerald ash borer and are considered dangerous. New trees will be planted to replace them.

The emerald ash borer
The emerald ash borer infests several trees on the island of Montreal and can make them fragile and dangerous.

To help reduce the spread of the emerald ash borer, the City of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue has implemented several measures. One of them is to offer its residents a subsidy program for the felling of an ash tree affected by the emerald ash borer and for its replacement.

For more information, visit the section on the emerald ash borer and on the subsidy program.

Work on the Upstream Jetty of Parks Canada

Mid-May to November 2020

Parks Canada wishes to inform the public that major work will occur this year to the upstream jetty at the Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue Canal National Historic Site. The jetty was closed following the severely damaging floods of 2017 and will undergo significant rehabilitation work. The planned work will be carried out from approximately mid-May, to November 2020.

Parks Canada’s efforts include repairing sections of the jetty’s walls, installing structural concrete slabs, curbs and guardrails, building pedestrian trails and installing new lampposts. The jetty’s surface will also be replaced with concrete and wood inserts, as these materials are more resistant to spring freshets and flooding.

Parks Canada’s visitor services, including reception, information, lockage and mooring, are currently suspended until further notice in an effort to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). However, additional temporary closures of the affected areas will be required throughout the duration of this work. Once the navigation season has reopened, access will be maintained for boaters, although the work may cause occasional disruptions. Noise and dust are also anticipated, as is the transportation of materials in the evenings and at night.

Public safety is a priority for Parks Canada. As such, work sites will be clearly identified and secured and visitors are asked to be patient, exercise caution and respect the temporary signage. Throughout the work, Parks Canada will work closely with its partners to minimize the impact on all users. Rest assured that the work is planned in a way to ensure minimal inconveniences.

As a result of completing this federal infrastructure project, $14 million will have been invested over the last five years to protect this valued site and to ensure safe, high-quality visitor experiences.

Datasheets for all sectors 


Environmental mitigation measures :

The REM project aims to integrate harmoniously with its immediate surroundings, which is why more than 85% of the work will be carried out on public domain, on existing road and railway rights-of-way. At the same time, however, some brush clearing and deforestation work will be realized in two sequences, before March 1st and after August 15th, which are necessary so the REM rail infrastructure, stations and access roads can be constructed. In the next few weeks, branch removal and tree and shrub cutting will take place in your sector.

Mitigation measures :

  • Work will be performed outside the nesting season (March 1st to August 15th)
  • These activities will be supervised and coordinated by our environmental experts, and will follow industry best practices and applicable standards and regulations;
  • At-risk plant species and trees will be relocated;
  • Through a reforestation program, the same number of trees that were cut in temporary construction zones will be replanted, and an additional 10% will be planted in the municipal territory or borough where the trees were cut.
