The MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges offers a regional territorial information to its municipalities. Therefore, the MRC is working with the municipalities on different levels such as acquiring data, consultation, spatial analysis, and mapping.
The Territory Information service offered by the MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges is distinguished by its reliability, frequent updates, and exhaustive geographical information that is used to support managerial and professional decisions within the municipalities.
The Territory Information service also fulfills the needs of the MRC, especially regarding territory development, public and fire safety, property assessment, sustainable social development, built heritage, watercourses, and environmental concerns.
Creation of Flood Zone Maps
Regarding the creation of flood zone maps from 2017 spring flood information, and in the context of climate changes, it was agreed that creation of updated maps would be both very useful and necessary.
Given that the citizens are not necessarily all aware of the risks associated with floods, it is vital to reconsider how this information is distributed. Therefore, a communication plan will be created in order to support those responsible for planning, informing the citizens, and creating municipal regulations.
The project consists of determining the flood risks within the territory of the three MRCs in order to ensure the safety of people and property.
