Tips and recommendations
The arrival of spring and warmer temperatures is a delight! But melting snow increases water levels and the risk of flooding in certain areas.

For health precautions after a flood, consult the Flood guidelines. In it, you will find recommendations from the Direction régionale de santé publique de Montréal regarding cleaning your home after flooding, eliminating mold from your home, cleaning up outdoors, possible contamination of drinking water, and more situations warranting precaution.
Monitoring and support
Since the beginning of the spring season, the Organisation régionale de sécurité civile (ORSC) and the Centre de sécurité civile de la Ville de Montréal have been monitoring water levels and weather predictions. In parallel, the Coordination régionale des mesures d’urgence et de la sécurité civile of the CIUSSS du Centre-Sud-de-l'Île-de-Montréal, in collaboration with the institutions belonging to the Montreal health and social services network, is responsible for implementing and coordinating measures if necessary. For example: support for a territory or health facility at risk of being flooded, organization of health services for victims of flooding, etc.
