This is the 11th episode of our Field Perspective series, in which we unveil video capsules that illustrate the diversity and innovation of our projects. For this episode, our film crew travelled to Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot to show you images from a shoreline stabilization project that prevented a landslide on the banks of the St. Lawrence River.

The project was located in a residential area and aimed to prevent a major landslide – an emergency measure taken by the Quebec Ministry of Public Safety to avoid serious consequences for local residents. Two sections, over 500 m and 300 m long, presented problems of slope instability and bank erosion. After a great deal of support and negotiation, we succeeded in obtaining the necessary authorizations from the Ministère de l’Environnement du Québec and Fisheries and Ocean Canada before starting the project.

Samuel Blanchet, our Project Manager in Environmental Characterization and Rehabilitation, and Isabelle Roy, Director of Technical Services and Public Works for the City of Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot, explain in more detail what was involved, with beautiful images from our drone pilot Carl Blanchet, Project Manager in the Surveying – Data Acquisition department at FNX-INNOV.
