Waste Management Plans

A waste management plan is a regional planning tool used to ensure integrated management of waste. The MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges is subject to two waste management plans. The member municipalities of the Montreal Metropolitan Community (MMC) are subject to the Plan métropolitain de gestion des matières résiduelles (PMGMR).

Politique relative à la gestion des cours d’eau

The MRC efficiently manages more than 1300 kilometers of watercourses. The MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges’ Politique relative à la gestion des cours d’eau aims to define the operations framework regarding its incumbent obligations and responsibilities for the watercourses located in its region and under its exclusive jurisdiction, in virtue of Articles 103-108 of the Loi sur les compétences municipales (L.Q. 2005, chapter 6). The MRCs jurisdiction regarding lakes provided for in Article 110 of this same law is, however, excluded.

The Politique relative à la gestion des cours d’eau of Vaudreuil-Soulanges was adopted by the MRC council in 2006 and then amended in 2010. At the time of its adoption, the MRC added an innovative prevention consideration to its policy for preemptive interventions against issues with obstructions in watercourses. The MRC also established a cutting-edge method for financing these works, establishing billing per drainage bassin weighted by geographical criteria. The MRC is responsible for managing, maintaining, and protecting the watercourses in its territory in order to reestablish normal water flow following an obstruction so that it does not cause any damage to goods, people, or property.
