A huge reservoir, now being built at Anse au Foulon, on Promenade Champlain, will prevent overflow from spring runoff and heavy rains flowing into the river.

Construction is on pace for a huge reservoir on Promenade Champlain next to the Yacht Club de Quebec, and that’s good news for those longing to eventually swim in the St. Lawrence River in that vicinity.

The $22 million Foulon retention reservoir is being built by Charles-Auguste Fortier construction company, the lowest of nine bidders on the contract awarded in October, 2016.
