Les Cèdres generating station was built in 1913 and 1914. An embankment dike was also built upstream of the powerhouse to create a headrace canal that would direct water from the Fleuve Saint-Laurent into the powerhouse.
A number of studies and inspections of this dike conducted by Hydro-Québec show water infiltration and seepage from the headrace canal. As a result, to ensure the long-term operability of the facilities, Hydro-Québec must repair the fill of the embankment dike of the Les Cèdres headrace canal.
The purpose of this project is to improve the watertightness and stability of the dike and to minimize the risk of erosion of its foundation.
Many public consultation activities were held at fall 2016. Two open houses meetings were organized on november 23rd and 24th 2016 in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield (Saint-Timothée area) and in Les Cèdres in order to present the project to the public and have a good view of the expectations of the host community. Meetings with different local organizations have also been held in the past.
