Évaluation de la vulnérabilité aux changements climatiques du réseau de drainage unitaire de Montréal

Le Service de l’eau de la Ville de Montréal a signé une entente avec Ingénieurs Canada afin d’utiliser le Protocole du comité sur la vulnérabilité de l’ingénierie des infrastructures publiques (Protocole) pour l’évaluation de la vulnérabilité des infrastructures de drainage unitaire du Service aux changements climatiques. Le Protocole consiste en une méthodologie d’évaluation centrée sur l’utilisation d’une matrice de risques et sur le jugement professionnel. (Available in French only)

Three Newfoundland and Labrador Infrastructure Case Studies

Risk assessment of three Newfoundland and Labrador infrastructure case studes: A bridge in Corner Brook, Stormwater infrastructure in Goulds, and a high school in Placentia.

Town of Prescott Sanitary Sewer System

For this particular study, the Town of Prescott and Engineers Canada agreed to partner and co-fund an engineering vulnerability assessment of the Town of Prescott’s sanitary sewage system in the context of both the existing climate and future climate change, using the PIEVC Protocol (version 9, April 2009). The main objective of this assessment and pilot study was to identify components of the sanitary sewage system which are at increased risk of failure, damage, deterioration, reduced operational effectiveness, and/or reduced life cycle from potential future changes in climate.

District of Shelburne New Sewage Treatment Plant

This case study is unique in that the PIEVC Protocol has been applied at the pre-design stage of the project, rather than conducting the assessment after the infrastructure has been constructed. It has also been applied in this instance to a small wastewater treatment plant in a rural community, with a view to learn about the scalability of the Protocol and to develop recommendations for how it can best be used to assess other infrastructure of a similar scale.
