Location of the St. Lawrence River estuary strech vulnerability areas

This database details the location of vulnerability areas in order to identify priority sectors to consider in the case of the event of an oil spill. For each of the targeted areas, different elements of vulnerability were taken into account. The identification of the zones was done on the whole territory of the Comité ZIP Les Deux Rives which extends from the city of Trois-Rivières to Sainte-Anne-de-la-Pérade, on the north shore, and between municipal boundaries of Bécancour and Deschaillons-sur-Saint-Laurent, on the south shore.
