Development of an intervention plan in the Rivière à la Raquette watershed.


Field visit observations and cartographic data suggest that the Rivière à la Raquette is not in a state of equilibrium. Specifically, it shows serious erosion and slippage, a lack of vegetation, an absence of medium-size wetlands, and very steep riparian strip embankments. All these factors indicate that the river’s reduced mobility space accelerates the flow of water, which increases flooding problems for inhabitants along the Ottawa River. This project aims to develop an intervention plan by targeting priority areas through a hydrogeomorphological analysis of the watershed, and identify solutions adapted to climate change. The goal is to draw up specific intervention plans for each prioritized area.
