Geographic location: This substation is located in the municipality of Shannon, near the Valcartier military base. The dismantling of this substation has been made possible by the commissioning of the new Duchesnay substation, located in the municipality of Sainte-Catherine-de-la-Jacques-Cartier.
Impact: The dismantling of Val-Rose substation will lead to a temporary increase in traffic due to the use of machinery and the transportation of materials. Whenever possible, work will be carried out within the hours set forth in municipal bylaws.
Start of work: Summer 2017 – Removal of structures
End of work: Spring 2018 – Rehabilitation and restoration
Environmental protection: A Hydro-Québec representative will ensure that all work is carried out with due respect for the environment and that sites are restored in accordance with requirements once the work is complete.
