Gatineau reminds flood victims to leave their sandbags next to the street

Gatineau, June 6, 2019. – Ville de Gatineau reminds flood victims who still have sandbags on their properties to leave them next to the street. The sandbags should be placed on the municipal right-of-way.


Quick facts

Service des travaux publics crews will be picking up the bags left next to the street on Saturday and Sunday, June 8 and 9.
Flood victims should place their sandbags inside their property line (on the right-of-way).
- It is important not to leave the bags on the street or sidewalk so as to avoid interfering with traffic.
Construction and demolition residues must be kept separate from sandbags and household garbage, also next to the street.
There will be no parking on certain streets so that the trucks picking up the sandbags can get through. Some streets may be temporarily closed.
- Residents are invited to limit their movements in the affected sectors and to follow the temporary signs.
More than 890,000 sandbags were distributed, which is three times more than in 2017.
