Eau : les usines de Dorval et Lachine seront fermées
SARAH DAOUST-BRAUN Mardi, 30 janvier 2018 12:53MISE à JOUR Mardi, 30 janvier 2018 12:53 Montréal fermera les usines d’eau potable de Dorval et de Lachine pour économiser sur les coûts d’entretien et de maintien des deux installations jugées vétustes.
Les deux usines, qui fournissent moins de 5 % de l’eau aux Montréalais, seront fermées dans dix ans. Il s’agit des deux plus petites usines des six que possède Montréal.
Après la fermeture, le réseau de Lachine sera alors raccordé au réseau de l’usine Atwater et de Charles-Desbaillets, et celui de Dorval à l’usine de Pointe-Claire.
D’ici ce temps, la Ville investira 235 millions de dollars pour construire 23 km de conduites principales pour le raccordement du réseau des deux secteurs au reste de la métropole.
Le responsable des infrastructures de l’eau au comité exécutif, Sylvain Ouellet, jugeait qu’il était plus risqué financièrement de rénover complètement les deux usines que de les démanteler, une option qui permettra d’économiser 5 M$ par année selon lui.
Le projet était à l’étude depuis deux ans sous l’ancienne administration de Denis Coderre et a été approuvé par la nouvelle administration à la suite des élections.
La mairesse de Lachine, Maja Vodanovic, s’est réjouie de l’annonce, soulignant que le démantèlement de son usine permettra de régler le problème d’arrière-goût de l’eau dans son arrondissement, alimenté par les rapides de Lachine.
Elle espère que le terrain de l’usine accueillera à terme le terminal de la future ligne rose du métro, promise en campagne électorale par Projet Montréal.

Condo development proposed for site of former Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet
Monday, September 19, 2011
A public consultation will be held Monday night in Dorval on a zoning change that would pave the way for the construction of a three-storey, 30-unit condominium development across the street from the Pine Beach AMT commuter train station.
The zoning change would couple two vacant lots into one property measuring close to 16,000 square metres. One of the properties is the empty lot on the corner of Cardinal Ave. and Pine Beach Blvd. where a Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet stood until it was demolished about five years ag. The other lot is 505 Clement Ave., a private home until it was torn down two years ago.
The middle-density housing development is just one of many going up in the West Island along the transportation corridor.
"It’s one of the trends," said Mario St. Jean, Dorval’s director of urban planning. Building along the train line "makes sense. You wake up, take your breakfast and, after a quick walk, you are at the train station."
St. Jean said a private developer has already submitted plans to Dorval for the project.
A similar although larger middle density project is Dorval Espace MV, St. Jean said. Located on Bouchard Blvd., it includes condos, townhouses on property formerly owned by Novartis Canada, the pharmaceutical company. That project is well on its way to completion.
The public consultation is scheduled for 7:50 p.m. in the municipal council chamber at Dorval city hall, 60 Martin Ave.

Dorval considering options for major facelift
City wants public input on its draft of master urban plan
Wednesday, March 14, 2012
The city of Dorval is looking to make a few changes in how it looks - everything from revitalizing its waterfront to giving Dorval Ave. a facelift.
The next step in preparing a new sustainable master urban plan is a public consultation set for March 26. The city has prepared a draft of its master plan, a general statement of the direction the city should follow over the next two decades regarding development, zoning and quality of life concerns as well as promoting and encouraging "greener" options. It now hopes to gauge input from citizens before adopting the formal version later this fall, said Mayor Edgar Rouleau.
Among its proposals, the city aims to make its waterfront along Lake St. Louis more user-friendly and animated, possibly installing outdoor exercise equipment at Millennium Park.
As well, it will consider purchasing select private lands near existing cityowned sites, like the Forest and Stream Club, should they ever come on the market, the mayor said.
"There are sites along Lakeshore that may, in five or 10 years, become available and the council should at that time evaluate if it's worthwhile to acquire," Rouleau said of potentially adding to publicly owned space along the lake.
"Is it going to expensive? As you know, yes."
While the city is also looking at encouraging highdensity residential develop-ment, especially around the Pine Beach and Dorval train stations and along Bouchard Blvd., it will have to be measured in light of respecting the single-family home residential character in much of the city.
There is also a goal to reverse an aging demographic trend by attracting young families and immigrants, the latter of which are expected to account for more than 30 per cent of Dorval's population by 2024. As of 2011, Dorval had about 18,615 residents and approximately 8,000 households, with an additional 2,000 housing units envisioned by the city within a decade, including more affordable housing.
"Residents want the population to increase, but they don't want to lose that residential sector that we have," Rouleau said. "We're not going to change that, except those few big lots we have, like the one at the corner of De la Presentation and Lakeshore, which will soon be developed," he said.
The city also aims to revitalize the commercial area on Dorval Ave. and make it more attractive. For example, by allowing outdoor terraces, and making it safer for both pedestrians and cyclists. A study has already been commissioned to prepare some proposals, the mayor said.
"We want it more friendly, but the challenge is that we cannot widen the road," Rouleau said of Dorval Ave.
"Whatever we extend, we have to take it from somewhere else. Right now it's two lanes each way with an island in the middle and sidewalks on both sides," he said, adding that perhaps the avenue could be reduced to one lane in each direction with a narrow median strip to allow for something like a bike path.
