Rehabilitation at the Cap-aux-Meules dock

Ever since a spill occurred at the Cap-aux-Meules dock in September 2014, Hydro-Québec has been remediating the soil and groundwater there. In November 2017, the rehabilitation of the dock using in-situ techniques was completed in accordance with our objectives and commitments, and to the satisfaction of the government authorities. In 2018, the company will contribute to restoring the site by carrying out landscaping and other work, designed in cooperation with the community. This project, which aims to visually improve the site, will include:

  • The reconfiguration of the intersection of du Parc and du Quai streets
  • The development of rest and eating areas
  • Improved signage for tourists and visitors, particularly involving tourist attractions and public services
  • The creation of well-defined pedestrian spaces
  • The addition of landscaping features.
