Flooding of June 30: situation update at the end of the first day of recovery

The City of Mont-Tremblant wishes to provide a situation update on the damage incurred on its territory following the heavy rains of last night. 

According to preliminary data from Environment Canada, average rainfall of 40 mm to 50 mm fell on the Mont-Tremblant region in the previous 24 hours. The districts most affected may have received more than 70 mm during that same period. 

The intensity of this rain event had a major impact on municipal infrastructure, including roadway collapse, landslides and the flooding of a significant number of public roads, forcing the closing of eight of these, namely:

  • chemin Duplessis;
  • chemin de l'Érablière;
  • chemin au Pied de la Montagne;
  • chemin Saint-Bernard;
  • chemin des Hauteurs (at the intersection of Hwy.117);
  • chemin de la Plage Vanier;
  • chemin de la Paroi;
  • rue Régimbald.

The departments of public works and fire safety have been at work on the territory since about 5 a.m. this morning. Heavy machinery will be operating day and night to re-establish a temporary traffic lane on the affected roads in order to permit essential travel as quickly as possible.

The scale of the damage to municipal infrastucture is still being evaluated. More than 50 municipal roads as well as numerous paths and trails have suffered damage, according to the preliminary assessment.

The City invites the public to be cautious and not to venture onto structures whose safety appears compromised. In some places, the roadway could appear safe at first glance but be at risk of collapse; again, caution is in order. 

Smooth traffic flow of the trucks carrying fill materials is essential for the repair operations to go well. Please avoid districts affected and respect all closings of roads, tracks and trails to ensure that construction goes smoothly and that everyone remains safe. 

To obtain the most recent updates, the public is invited to check the website and Facebook page of the Ville de Mont-Tremblant regularly. 

Residents affected can communicate directly with the Department of Public Works during regular hours at 819 425-8614, extension 2600 or to call 9-1-1 in an emergency. 

The Diable river – risk of minor flooding

Please note that the level of the Diable River is likely to increase until about 10 p.m. on the evening of June 30, thus exceeding the threshold for minor flooding. The City recommends that residents of flood zones beside the Diable River be vigilant and be sure to establish the usual flood danger protocol, available on this web page, particularly by identifying a safe place where they could take refuge in the event of evacuation. 

Please note that residents of flood zones are strongly invited to subscribe to the automated alert service at villedemont-tremblant.qc.ca/alerte.

Make a point of checking our various digital platforms regularly to follow the evolution of the situation.
