All that is needed now is a few days of sunshine and for grass to grow to cover the top of the retrofitted reservoir on the Plains of Abraham.

Work is in the final stages on the huge reservoir underneath the Plains of Abraham near Martello Tower No. 1. Beginning last October, workers installed a waterproof membrane on the roof of the massive underground concrete structure to prevent damage and water seepage from above. The reservoir holds up to 136 million litres of water and is 40 by 95 metres in size.
