Flooding mainly occurs in spring when the snow melts and in the summer during heavy rains. Nonetheless, for several years now, we have observed high water levels even in winter.

Municipalities must be attentive to the possible indicators and causes of flooding on their territories and take measures to protect their citizens and essential infrastructures. Citizens must do whatever is necessary to protect themselves and their belongings (Sécurité publique du Québec).
