City posts new map of Laval’s flood zones

In order for the residents of Laval to have access to a detailed picture of the spring flooding situation, the city has posted a new map and other details on its web site. Both can be viewed on the web (in English) at According to the city, the map shows streets that are susceptible to flooding, as well as areas where temporary measures have been set up.

In as much as river levels are lower than they were last year, the city says it continues to monitor the situation and public safety and works crews are standing by ready to get into action should this prove to be necessary. The city says it has divided the region up into operational planning zones (ZPO). Each zone is graded A, B, C or D, where A represents areas where water rises most rapidly.
