Heavy rains: no imminent risk of flooding in Chelsea

In anticipation of heavy rains and warm weather expected in the region in the coming days, our team is currently mobilized and closely monitoring the situation.

The water level of the section of the Gatineau River flowing within the limits of the municipality is currently lower than normal.  At the moment, there does not seem to be any imminent risk of flooding. We remind you that in 2017, Chelsea was not affected by the floods.

Rest assured that if the situation changes in the coming days, sandbags will be made available to residents.

Water reduction notice to users of the water system

Work required at the water treatment plant from April 8 to 12 creates a risk of low-flow wastewater discharge into the Gatineau River despite the mitigation measures that will be put in place to limit any discharge.

This work is necessary to replace some control panels to keep our plants operating. Since this is work related to control panels, system shutdown is necessary to allow the contractor to proceed safely.
