City Authorities Monitoring River Levels as Snow Thaws

Quebec City (Quebec) 12 March 2015 – River levels are still “under control” in the region of Quebec, but civil security has eyes turned to next week, when the temperature forecasts ranging between 10°C and 16°C could cause overflows.

“We are in monitoring mode, but for now there is no impact, and we do not expect any until next week,” said France-Sylvie Loisel of Civil Security, speaking of “normal ice movements” on all the rivers of the region.

On the side of Hydro-Weather, it also argues that the work of weakening the ice were made including the Beaurivage River in Lévis sector, and Portneuf, where major flooding occurred the last year.

City officials say the rainfall yesterday drove up levels on all rivers, but the situation has stabilized. They are closely monitoring the Sainte-Anne, which is expected to continue to rise.
